1 In the early morning, early
Ere the dawn was even nigh--
Gloria in excelsis Deo!
Glory be to God on high.
When the crown-like stars were lustrous;
When the dew was on the sod,
Sang the Angels to the Shepherds,
Sang the choristers of God.

2 To the humble Bethlehem shepherds,
On the first glad Christmas morn,
Sang the choir of God Angelic,--
Christ the Son of God is born!
When the dew was white and pearly,
Flashed a light across the sky,
In the early morning, early,
Glory be to God on high.

3 Glory in the heavens eternal,
Upon earth be glory, too,
For the day of grace hath broken,
And a King is born to you.
In the early morning, early,
Glory be to God on high;
Rang the sound of Angels harping,
Through the stilly list'ning sky.
