Lyrics:
1. The angel Gabriel from heaven came, 
    His wings as drifted snow, his eyes as flame;
    "All hail," said he, "O lowly maiden Mary,"
    Most highly favored lady, Gloria!

2. "For know a blessed mother you shall be,
    All generations praise continually,
    Your Son shall be Emmanuel, by seers foretold."
    Most highly favored lady, Gloria!

3. Then gentle Mary meekly bowed her head,
    "To me be as it pleases God," she said,
    "My soul shall laud and magnify God's holy name."
    Most highly favored lady, Gloria!

4. Of her, Emmanuel, the Christ, was born
    In Bethlehem, all on a Christmas morn,
    And Christian folk throughout the world will ever say:
    Most highly favored lady, Gloria!
