142 ~ Angels We Have Heard On High



1

Angels we have heard on high,
Singing sweetly through the night,
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their brave delight.


Refrain

Gloria in excelsis Deo,
Gloria in excelsis Deo.


2

Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why these songs of happy cheer?
What great brightness did you see?
What glad tidings did you hear?


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 Him in a manger laid
Whom the angels praise above;
Mary, Joseph, lend your aid,
While we raise our hearts in love.
