“It Came Upon A Midnight Clear” is a modern piano solo rendition of a hymn of the same name. The melody is freely adapted from a traditional Irish tune. In this video, I am going to walk you through the piece, note by note.

Beautiful solo piano arrangement of the Christmas classic.

This rendition of It Came Upon A Midnight Clear was recorded as a solo piano as a Christmas gift to my family and friends. I hope you enjoy it as well.

It Came Upon a Midnight Clear - Lyrics

It came upon a midnight clear
That glorious song of old
From angels bending near the earth
To touch their harps of gold

Peace on the earth, good will 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

All 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
And hear the angels sing
