Christmas Songbook

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.

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 heavnly song?

(Chorus)

Come to Bethlehem and see
Him whose birth the angels sing.
Come adore on bended knee
Christ the Lord❟ the newborn King.

(Chorus)

See him in a manger laid
Whom the angels praise above;
Mary❟ Joseph❟ lend your aid❟
While we raise our hearts in love.

(Chorus)
