Veiled In Darkness Judah Lay

Words: Douglas LeTell Rights, 1915

Music: "Nicht So Traurig,"Johann Georg Ebeling, 1666
MIDI / Noteworthy Composer

1. Veiled in darkness Judah lay,
Waiting for the promised day,
While across the shadowy night
Streamed a flood of glorious light,
Heavenly voices chanting then,
"Peace on earth, good will to men."

2. Still the earth in darkness lies.
Up from death’s dark vale arise
Voices of a world in grief,
Prayers of men who seek relief:
Now our darkness pierce again,
"Peace on earth, good will to men."

3. Light of light, we humbly pray,
Shine upon Thy world today;
Break the gloom of our dark night,
Fill our souls with love and light,
Send Thy blessèd Word again,
"Peace on earth, good will to men."
