Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
It came upon the midnight clear,
That glorious song of old

Walk around your corner, see saw your girl
Allemande the corner and weave the ring
Peace on the earth, goodwill to men
Swing and you promenade
The world in solemn stillness lay
To hear the angels sing


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) make a left hand star you turn it around
To the outside pair do the right & left thru
Swing thru then boys run right
Ferris wheel, pass thru
Touch 1/4, split circulate two times round
Swing your corner girl and all promenade
*The world in solemn stillness lay
To hear the angels sing.


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*From angels bending near the earth,
To touch their harps of gold

It Came Upon The Midnight Clear Lyrics ID: 2210

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!

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.

Composed by Richard Storrs Willis.
Lyrics by Edmund Sears.
Recorded by Daryl Hall & John Oates; many others.
