1. Angels we have heard on high Sweetly singing o’er the plains, And the mountains in reply Echo back their joyous strains.

2. Shepherds, why this jubilee? Why your joyous strains prolong? Say what may the tidings be Which inspire your heav’nly song?

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

4. See within a manger laid, Jesus, Lord of heav’n and earth! Mary, Joseph, lend your aid, With us sing our Savior’s birth.

Refrain: Gloria, in excelsis Deo! Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
