Angels We Have Heard on High

(Old French Carol)

Verse 1
Angels we have heard on high, Sweetly singing o'er the plains
And the mountains in reply, Echo back their joyous strains.
Verse 2
Shepherds, why this jubilee?  Why your joyous strains prolong?
Say, what may the tidings be, Which inspire your heav'nly song?
Verse 3
Come to Bethlehem, and see Him whose birth the angels sing;
Come, adore on bended knee, Christ the Lord, the newborn King.
Verse 4
See within a manger laid, Jesus, Lord of heav'n and earth!
Mary, Joseph, lend you aid, With us sing our Savior's birth.
Glor --------- ria, in excelsis De-o,
Glor ----------ria, in excelsis De-o.
