Angels We Have Heard On High

Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing o’er th 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 heav’nly song?

Gloria in excelsis Deo;
Gloria in excelsis Deo.

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

Gloria in excelsis Deo;
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
