Christmas Songbook

Angels We Have Heard On High

Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing o❜er the plains❟
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains.

In excelsis Deo❟
In excelsis Deo.

Shepherds❟ why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strains prolong?
What the gladsome 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 him in a manger laid
Whom the angels praise above;
Mary❟ Joseph❟ lend your aid❟
While we raise our hearts in love.
