ANGELS WE HAVE HEARD ON HIGH

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

CHORUS
Gloria, in excelsis Deo

Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strains prolong?
What the gladsome tidings be
Which inspire Your heavenly song?

CHORUS
Gloria, in excelsis Deo
Gloria, in excelsis Deo
Gloria, in excelsis Deo
Gloria, in excelsis Deo

HARK! THE HERALD ANGELS SING

Hark! The herald angels sing,
“Glory to the newborn King!
Peace on earth, and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled”
Joyful, all ye nations, rise,
Join the triumph of the skies;
With th’ angelic host proclaim,
“Christ is born in Bethlehem”
Hark! The herald angels sing,
“Glory to the newborn King”

Hail! The heaven-born Prince of Peace!
Hail! The Son of Righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings,
Risen with healing in His wings
Mild He lays His glory by,
Born that man no more may die:
Born to raise the sons of earth,
Born to give them second birth
Hark! The herald angels sing,
“Glory to the newborn King”

CHORUS
Gloria, in excelsis Deo
Gloria, in excelsis Deo
Gloria, in excelsis Deo
Gloria, in excelsis Deo
