Hush All Ye Sounds Of War


Hush, all ye sounds of war, ye nations all be still;
A voice of heavenly joy steals over vale and hill.
O hear the angels sing the captive world’s release:
This day is born in Bethlehem the Prince of Peace.

No more divided be, ye families of men:
Old enmity forget, old friendship knit again.
In the new year of God let brothers’ love increase –
This day is born in Bethlehem the Prince of Peace.
