Angels We Have Heard On High

 


Angels we have heard on high

Sweetly singing oer the plains,

And the mountains in reply

Echoing their joyous strains.

 


Refrain

Gloria, in excelsis Deo!

Gloria, in excelsis Deo!

 


Shepherds, why this jubilee?

Why your joyous strains prolong?

What the gladsome tidings be

Which inspire your heavenly song?

 


Come to Bethlehem and see

Christ Whose birth the angels sing;

Come, adore on bended knee,

Christ the Lord, the newborn King.

 


See Him in a manger laid,

Whom the choirs of angels praise;

Mary, Joseph, lend your aid,

While our hearts in love we raise.

 


Traditional French Carol.

Translation: James Chadwick (1813-82)
