Angels we have heard on high

Angels we have heard on high
sweetly singing o'er our plains,
and the mountains in reply
echo still their joyous strains.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.

Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why your rapturous strain prolong?
Say, what may your tidings be,
Which inspire your heavenly song.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.

Come to Bethlehem and see
him whose birth the angels sing:
come, adore on bended knee
the infant Christ, the new-born king.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.

See within a manger laid,
Jesus, Lord of heaven and earth!
Mary, Joseph, lend your aid
to celebrate our Savior's birth.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.

French, trans. James Chadwick (1813-1882)
