Angels we have heard on high

Angels we have heard on high
sweetly singing o’er the plains.
And the mountains in reply
echoing their joyous strains.


Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!


Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strains prolong?
What the gladsome tidings be?
Which inspire your heavenly song?




Come to Bethlehem and see
Him whose birth the angels sing;
Come, adore on bended knee,
Christ the Lord, the newborn King.




See Him in a manger laid
Jesus Lord of heaven and earth;
Mary, Joseph, lend your aid,
with us sing our Savior’s birth.
