Angels we have heard on high

Angels we have heard on high, Sweetly singing o’er the plain
And the mountains in reply, Echoing their joyous strain

Gloria, in excelsis Deo! Gloria, in excelsis Deo!

Shepherds, why this jubilee? Why your joyous strains prolong?
What the gladsome tidings be which inspire your heavenly songs? Refrain

Come to Bethlehem and see Him Whose birth the angels sing;
Come, adore on bended knee, Christ the Lord, the newborn King. Refrain
