1 Angels we have heard on high,
sweetly singing o'er the plains,
and the mountains in reply,
echo back their joyous strains.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
gloria in excelsis Deo.
2 Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strains prolong?
Say what may the tidings be,
which inspire your heav'nly song? (Refrain)
3 Come to Bethlehem and see
him whose birth the angels sing;
come, adore on bended knee
Christ the Lord, the new-born King. (Refrain)
