Lyrics:
1.  Angels we have heard on high,
    Sweetly singing o'er the plains,
    And the mountains in reply
    Echoing their joyous strains.
    Gloria in excelsis Deo;
    Gloria in excelsis Deo.

2.  Shepherds, why this jubilee?
    Why your joyous strains prolong?
    What the gladsome tidings be
    Which inspire your heavenly song?
    Gloria in excelsis Deo;
    Gloria in excelsis Deo.

3.  Come to Bethlehem and see
    Him whose birth the angels sing;
    Come, adore on bended knee
    Christ, the Lord, the newborn King.
    Gloria in excelsis Deo;
    Gloria in excelsis Deo.
