Descants on ten Christmas Hymns and Carols

Pages: 16


Joy to the world!
The Lord is come, the Lord is come;
Let earth receive her King;
Let ever heart prepare Him room,
And Heaven and Nature Sing

O little town of Bethlehem,
How still we see thee lie;
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by.
Yet in thy dark streets shineth
The everlasting Light;
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight.

It came upon the midnight clear,
That glorious song, that song of old,
From angels bending near the earth,
To touch their harps of gold.
"Peace on the earth, good will to men
From heav'n's all gracious King."
the world in solemn stillness lay
To hear the angels sing.

Silent night, Holy night,
All is calm, all is bright
