1 The angel Gabriel from heaven came,
His wings as drifted snow, his eyes as flame:
"All hail," said he, "O lowly maiden Mary,
Most highly favored lady," Gloria!

2 "For know a blessed Mother you shall be,
All generations praise continually,
Your son shall be Emmanuel, by seers foretold,"
Most highly favored lady," Gloria!

3 Then gentle Mary meekly bowed her head,
"To me be as it pleases God," she said,
"My soul shall laud and magnify his holy name."
Most highly favored lady," Gloria!

4 Of her, Emmanuel, the Christ was born
In Bethlehem, all on a Christmas morn,
And Christian folk throughout the world will ever say:
Most highly favored lady," Gloria!
