[MIDI]

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

Shepherds why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strains prolong?
Say what may the tidings be,
Which inspire your heav'nly song
Gloria in excelsis Deo
Gloria in excelsis Deo

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

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
