Christmas ornaments hanging in tree

Angels We Have Heard On High
French Carol; translation by James Chadwick (1813-1882)
Music: French carol


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

Chorus:
Gloria in excelsis Deo,
Gloria in excelsis Deo.

Shepherds why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strains prolong?
What the gladstone tidings be
Which inspire your heavenly song>

Chorus

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