152R Veiled in Shadow Judah Lay

Meter, 7.7.7.7.7.7., Tune, EBELING or DIX.

1. Veiled in shad-ow Ju-dah lay,
Wait-ing for the pro-mised day,
While a-cross the drear-y night
Streamed a flood of glor-ious light,
Heav’n-ly voic-es chant the call,
“Peace on earth, good will to all.”

2. Still the earth in shad-ow lies,
Up from death’s deep vale a-rise
Voic-es of a world in grief,
Prayers of those who seek re-lief:
Now the shad-ow heeds the call,
“Peace on earth, good will to all.”

3. Light of light, we humb-ly pray,
Shine up-on your world to-day;
Break the gloom of our long night,
Fill our souls with love and light,
Send the bless-ed word and call,
“Peace on earth, good will to all.”
