1 Angels we have heard on high,
Singing sweetly through the night.
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their brave delight.
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? [Refrain]
3 Come to Bethlehem and see
Him whose birth the angels sing;
Come, adore on bended knee
Christ, the Lord, the newborn King. [Refrain]
