“A Christmas Hymn” by R. B. Woodin (1914)

A Christmas Hymn.


Softly to the listening ear

        Sounds of angel voices

Came from Heaven one midnight clear,

        All the earth rejoices.

“Peace on earth—Good will to men”

        Floated through the air;

To shepherds seated on the ground

        Came that message rare.

“Unto you is born this day,”

        They sang in sweet accord—;

“Unto you is born this day

        A Savior, Christ the Lord.”

“Alleluia! Alleluia!”

        Sang the angel voices.

Glory be to God on high

        Heaven, and earth, rejoices.

Troy Times. December 24, 1914: 11 col 1.
