Peace? In the midst of this?

Setlist: I Heard The Bells on Christmas Day / Doxology

I Heard The Bells on Christmas Day

I heard the bells on Christmas day

Their old familiar carols played

And wild and sweet, the words repeat

Of peace on earth, goodwill to men

 

I thought how as the day had come

The belfries of all Christendom

Had rolled along the unbroken song

Of peace on earth, goodwill to men

 

And in despair I bowed my head

There is no peace on earth, I said

For hate is strong and mocks the song

Of peace on earth, goodwill to men

 

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep

"God is not dead nor doth He sleep"

The wrong shall fail, the right prevail

With peace on earth, goodwill to men

 

Doxology

Praise God from whom all blessings flow

Praise Him all creatures here below

Praise Him above ye heavenly hosts

Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost

Amen

 

I Heard The Bells on Christmas Day is an excerpt from the poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow in 1863 and was set to a melody written in 1848 by John Baptiste Calkin. 

Doxology was written by Thomas Ken in 1674
