Angels We Have Heard on High | Christmas Carol

Angels we have heard on high,
Singing sweetly 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 new-born King.
See him in a manger laid,
Jesus Lord of heaven and earth,
Mary, Joseph, lend your aid,
While our hearts in love we raise.
"Angels We Have Heard on High" is a traditional Christmas carol of French origin ("Les Anges dans nos campagnes") translated by James Chadwick in 1862.
