188. Angels We Have Heard on High

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]
