It Came Upon The Midnight Clear (no capo version)
Performed by: Caedmon's Call
Album: Wow Christmas, (p) & (c) 2002 Word Entertainment LLC

I owe much to the version of this chord chart currently available online; 
however, I believe this version adheres more completely to the recording by 
getting rid of the capo and adding a few more chord changes.

Chords (EADGBE):
Cadd9: x30010
F: xx3211
Am7: x02013
E7: 022130
D7: xx0212

Intro: Go back and forth between C and Cadd9, which simply means taking your 
finger off of the D string and putting it back on again, in rhythm.  

   C    Cadd9    F        C
It came upon the midnight clear
      F                C     Cadd9
That glorious song of old.
     C      Cadd9   F        C
From angels bending near the earth
   F           G        Am7
To touch their harps of gold;
       E7                F
“Peace on the earth, goodwill to men,
     D7                    G
From heaven’s all gracious King!”
    C        Cadd9   F         C
The world in solemn stillness lay
    F        G     C      Cadd9     
To hear the angels sing.

C    Cadd9 (x3)

And 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:
And rest beside the weary road
    F        G      Am7
And hear the angels sing.

         F  G   Am7
Hear the angels sing (x2)

Interlude:  F  C  G  Am7 / F  G  C 
         
For lo, the days are hastening on,
By prophets seen of old
When with the ever circling years
Shall come the time foretold
When peace shall over all the earth
Its ancient splendors fling,
And the whole world send back the song
Which now the angels sing.

Hear the angels sing 8x

Last time:
         F  G   C
Hear the angels sing
