echoing their joyous strains.

Angels we have heard on high,
singing sweetly through the night;
and the mountains in reply,
echoing their brave delight

Gloria in excelsis Deo,
Gloria in excelsis Deo.

Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strings prolong?
What the gladsome tidings be
which inspire your heavenly 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, our newborn King.

Gloria in excelsis Deo!
Gloria in excelsis Deo!



Gloria in excelsis Deo...

Angels we have heard on high...

It's a Christmas carol that commemorates the story of the birth of Jesus Christ found in the Gospel of Luke, in which shepherds outside Bethlehem encounter a multitude of angels singing and praising the newborn child.

The lyrics are based on a traditional French carol known as 'Les Anges dans nos campagnes' composed by an unknown author in Languedoc, France. That song has received many adjustments or alignments including its most common English version that was translated in 1862 by James Chadwick, the Roman Catholic Bishop of Hexham and Newcastle, northeast England. The carol quickly became popular in the West Country, where it was described as 'Cornish' by R.R. Chope, and featured in Pickard-Cambridge's Collection of Dorset Carols.

Its most memorable feature is its chorus, "Gloria in Excelsis Deo", the first line of the song of the angels in the Gospel according to Luke. The hymn begins with the words that the angels sang when the birth of Christ was announced to shepherds in Luke 2:14.
