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

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

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

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

Gloria, in excelsis Deo,
Gloria, in excelsis Deo

How could heaven's heart not break
On the day, the day that You came
Salvation's reason to celebrate
On the day, the day that You came

How could heaven's heart not break
On the day, the day that You came
Salvation's reason to celebrate
On the day, the day that You came

Gloria, in excelsis Deo,
Gloria, in excelsis Deo

Gloria, gloria, gloria
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
