"It Came Upon the Midnight Clear" - Hymn 130



It Came Upon A Midnight Clear · Julie Andrews



It Came Upon the Midnight Clear, by Hymn #128


"It Came Upon the Midnight Clear", sometimes rendered as "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear", is an 1849 poem and Christmas carol written by Edmund Sears, pastor of the Unitarian Church in Wayland, Massachusetts. In 1850, Sears' lyrics were set to "Carol", a tune written for the poem the same year at his request, by Richard Storrs Willis. This pairing remains the most popular in the United States, while in Commonwealth countries, the lyrics are set to "Noel", a later adaptation by Arthur Sullivan from an English melody.


The full song comprises five stanzas.


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

Still through the cloven skies they come,
With peaceful wings unfurled,
And still their heavenly music floats
O'er all the weary world;
Above its sad and lowly plains,
They bend on hovering wing,
And ever o'er its babel sounds
The blessed angels sing.

Yet with the woes of sin and strife
The world has suffered long;
Beneath the angel-strain have rolled
Two thousand years of wrong;
And man, at war with man, hears not
The love-song which they bring;
O hush the noise, ye men of strife,
And hear the angels sing.

And ye, beneath life's crushing load,
Whose forms are bending low,
Who toil along the climbing way
With painful steps and slow,
Look now! for glad and golden hours
come swiftly on the wing.
O rest beside the weary road,
And hear the angels sing!

For lo!, the days are hastening on,
By prophet bards foretold,
When with the ever-circling years
Comes round the age of gold
When peace shall over all the earth
Its ancient splendors fling,
And the whole world give back the song
Which now the angels sing.

한글 가사

1. 그 맑고 환한 밤중에 뭇 천사 내려와

그 손에 비파 들고서 다 찬송하기를

평강의 왕이 오시니 다 평안하여라

그 소란하던 세상이 다 고요하도다


2. 뭇 천사 날개 펴고서 이 땅에 내려와

그때에 부른 노래가 또다시 들리니

이 슬픔 많은 세상에 큰 위로 넘치고

온 세상 기뻐 뛰놀며 다 찬송하도다


3. 이 괴롬 많은 세상에 짐 지고 가는 자

그 험산 준령 넘느라 온몸이 곤하나

이 죄악 세상 살 동안 새 소망 가지고

저 천사 기쁜 찬송을 들으며 쉬어라


4. 옛 선지 예언 응하여 베들레헴 성에

주 예수 탄생하시니 온 세상 구주라

저 천사 기쁜 노래를 또다시 부르니

온 세상 사는 사람들 다 화답하도다
