Representative Text

1 Christ is born of maiden fair;
Hark the heralds in the air,
Thus adoring descant there,
"In excelsis gloria."

2 Shepherds saw those Angels bright,
Carolling in glorious light;
"God, His Son is born to-night,
In excelsis gloria."

3 Christ is come to save mankind,
As in holy page we find,
Therefore this song bear in mind,
"In excelsis gloria."
