A Carol a Day

By Father Johann Roten, S.M.

It came upon a midnight clear

Edmund Hamilton Sears (lyrics)
Richard Stone Willis (music)
1849

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