Various Artists – Angels We Have Heard On High lyrics

And there were shepherds living out in the fields near by
Keeping watch over their flocks at night
An angel of the Lord appeared to them
And the glory of the God turned around them and they were terrified
But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid
I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people"

Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing o’er the plain
And the mountains in reply
Echo back their joyous strains

Gloria, Gloria
In excelsis deo

Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strains prolong?
Say what may the tidings be
Which inspire your heavenly song

Gloria, Gloria
In excelsis deo
Gloria, until our King

Gloria, still we sing
Gloria, until our King
Gloria, Gloria, Gloria

Come to Bethlehem and see
Him whose birth the angels sing, oh
Come adore on bended knee
Christ, the Lord, the new born King, yeah

Gloria, Gloria, Gloria, Gloria
In excelsis deo, in excelsis deo, in excelsis deo

Gloria, until I sing
Gloria, until our King
Gloria, until our King
