1 Angels we have heard on high
sweetly singing o'er the plains,
and the mountains in reply
echo back their joyous strains.

[Refrain:]
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 heavenly song? (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)

4 See within a manger laid
Jesus, Lord of heaven and earth!
Mary, Joseph, lend your aid,
sing with us our Savior's birth. (Refrain)
