Angels

13.  And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host
    praising God, and saying,
 14.  Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

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

            Refrain
            Glo - or - ia, in excelsis Deo!
            Glo - or - ia, in excelsis Deo!

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

            Refrain
            Glo - or - ia, in excelsis Deo!
            Glo - or - ia, in excelsis Deo!

          Come to Bethlehem and see
          Christ Whose birth the angels sing;
          Come, adore on bended knee,
          Christ the Lord, the newborn King.

            Refrain
            Glo - or - ia, in excelsis Deo!
            Glo - or - ia, in excelsis Deo!

          See Him in a manger laid,
          Whom the choirs of angels praise;
          Mary, Joseph, lend your aid,
          While our hearts in love we raise.

            Refrain
            Glo - or - ia, in excelsis Deo!
            Glo - or - ia, in excelsis Deo!
