90. Angels We Have Heard on High

1 Angels we have heard on high,
sweetly singing through the night,
and the mountains in reply
echoing their brave delight.

Refrain:
Gloria in excelsis Deo,
Gloria in excelsis Deo.

2 Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why these songs of happy cheer?
What great brightness did you see?
What glad tiding did you hear? (Refrain)

3 Come to Bethlehem and see
him whose birth the angels sing;
come, adore, on bended knee
Christ, the Lord, the newborn King. (Refrain)
