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, (repeat)
Shepherds why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strains prolong?
What the gladsome tidings be
Which inspire your heavenly song? Refrain
Come to Bethlehem and see
Him whose birth the angels sing;
Come adore on bended nee,
Christ the Lord, the newborn King. Refrain
