Hymn/Song Information

Angels we have heard on high Sweetly




Angels we have heard on high,
Sweetly singing o'er the plains,
And the mountains in reply
Echo back their joyous strains.

Gloria in exelsis Deo,
Gloria in exelsis Deo.



Shepherds, why the jubilee?
Why your joyous strains prolong?
Say what may the tidings be,
Which inspire your heavenly song?

Gloria in exelsis Deo,
Gloria in exelsis Deo.



Come to Bethlehem, and see
Him whose birth the angels sing;
Come, adore on bended knee
Christ the Lord, the new born King

Gloria in exelsis Deo,
Gloria in exelsis Deo.



See within a manger laid,
Jesus, Lord of heaven and earth!
Mary, Joseph, lend your aid,
With us sing our Saviour's birth.

Gloria in exelsis Deo,
Gloria in exelsis Deo.
