Lyrics

  1. 1. Angels we have heard on high
    Sweetly singing o’er the plains,
    And the mountains in reply
    Echoing their joyous strains.
  2. Gloria in excelsis Deo.
    Gloria in excelsis Deo.
  3. 2. Shepherds, why this jubilee?
    Why your joyous strains prolong?
    What the gladsome tidings be
    Which inspire your heav’nly song?
  4. Gloria in excelsis Deo.
    Gloria in excelsis Deo.
  5. 3. Come to Bethlehem and see
    Him whose birth the angels sing;
    Come, adore on bended knee
    Christ the Lord, the newborn King.
  6. Gloria in excelsis Deo.
    Gloria in excelsis Deo.
