Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence Am E7 Let all mortal flesh keep silence C Dm E7 And with fear and trembling stand; Am Ponder nothing earthly minded, C Dm C For with blessing in his hand A Dm Am G Christ on earth descendeth, Am Dm E7 Am Our full homage to demand. King of kings, yet born of Mary, As of old on earth He stood, Lord of lord in human vesture, On the body and the blood. He will give to all the faithful His own self for heavenly food. Rank on rank the host of heaven Spreads its vanguard on the way, As the Light of light descendeth From the realms of endless day, That the powers of hell may vanish As the darkness clears away. At His feet the six-winged seraph; Cherubim, with sleepless eye, Veil their faces to the Presence, As with ceaseless voice they cry, Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia, Lord most high.
