Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing through the night
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their brave delight.

Gloria in excelsis Deo,
Gloria in excelsis Deo.

Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why these songs of happy cheer?
What great brightness did you see?
What glad tidings did you hear?

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

Alternate lyrics for first verse:

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