#89: Angels We Have Heard on High

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)


Angels we have heard on high, Sweetly singing o’er the plains,

And the mountains, in reply, Echoing their joyous strains.


Gloria in excelsis Deo!

Gloria in excelsis Deo!


Shepherds, why this jubilee? Why your joyous strains prolong?

What the gladsome tiding be Which inspire your heav’nly song?



Come to Bethlehem and see Him whose birth the angels sing;

Come, adore on bended knee Christ the Lord, the newborn King.



See Him in a manger laid, Jesus, Lord of heav’n and earth;

Mary, Joseph, lend your aid, With us sing our Savior’s birth.
