(Old French Carol)
Angels we have heard on high, Sweetly singing o'er the plains
And the mountains in reply, Echo back their joyous strains.
Shepherds, why this jubilee? Why your joyous strains prolong?
Say, what may the tidings 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 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.
