“Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence” is one of the earliest Christian hymns still in common usage. Its roots date to the fourth century and is based on the Greek text “Prayer of the Cherubic Hymn” in the Liturgy of St. James.  The words are an ancient chant of devotion based on a passage from Habakkuk 2:20, "Let all the earth keep silence before him".   The text is often used as part of the Eucharist, or Holy Communion ceremony, in many modern-day churches. 

 It's association with Christmas started in 1864 when an anglican priest named Gerard Moultrie  provided a translation from the Greek that included the lines "God to earth descendeth" and "King of kings, yet born of Mary".

The tune PICARDY comes from a book of French folksongs, Chansons Populaires des Provinces de France, published in 1860. The famous English composer Ralph Vaughan Williams  paired it with this text for the English Hymnal (1906), and the text and tune have been inseparable since that time.

  Here is a link to a Youtube video of this hymn performed by a full orchestra and choir..  

The melody is in the key of Em, and is provided here in 3 different versions - capo'd at 1 and using the 1+ fret; capo'd at 1 but NOT using the 1+ fret; and capo'd at 3.  They each have their advantages and disadvantages in terms of chord voicings, fingering challenges, etc, so you may need to try them all to find which works best for you.  The good news is that they can all be played together.   In addition, I have provided 2 more parts that provide backup chords and a bass line.  

Wishing you all peace, joy, and MUSIC for the Christmas season, and throughout the coming New Year!

--Tull

Lyrics

Let all mortal flesh keep silence,
And with fear and trembling stand;
Ponder nothing earthly minded,
For with blessing in His hand,
Christ our God to earth descendeth
Our full homage to demand.

King of kings, yet born of Mary,
As of old on earth He stood,
Lord of lords, in human vesture,
In 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!
