From the recording I Heard An Angel Singing


I Heard An Angel SingingI heard an Angel singingWhen the day was springingMercy Pity PeaceIs the worlds releaseThus he sung all dayOver the new mown hayTill the sun went downAnd haycocks looked brownI heard a Devil curseOver the heath & the furzeMercy could be no moreIf there was nobody poorAnd pity no more could beIf all were happy as weAt his curse the sun went downAnd the heavens gave a frownDown pourd the heavy rainOver the new reapd grainAnd Miseries increaseIs Mercy Pity Peace
