1. Angels we have heard on highSweetly singing o'er the plains,And the mountains in replyEchoing their joyous strains.
(Chorus)Gloria in excelsis Deo.Gloria in excelsis Deo.
2. Shepherds, why this jubilee?Why your joyous strains prolong?What the gladsome tidings beWhich inspire your heav'nly song?
3. Come to Bethlehem and seeHim whose birth the angels sing;Come, adore on bended kneeChrist the Lord, the newborn King.
