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

Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.

2 Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strains prolong?
What the gladsome tidings be
Which inspire your heav'nly song. [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]


1 Ángeles cantando están
tan dulcísimo canción;
las montañas su eco dan
como fiel contestación.

Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.

2 Los pastores sin cesar
sus loores dan a Dios;
cuán glorioso es el cantar
de su melodiosa voz. [Estribillo]

3 ¡Oh! venid pronto a Belén
para contemplar con fe
a Jesús, autor del bien,
al recién nacido Rey. [Estribillo]
