Angels We Have Heard on High

Hymns of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints


Joyfully

1. Angels we have heard on high

Sweetly singing o’er the plains,

And the mountains in reply

Echoing their joyous strains.

[Chorus]

Gloria in excelsis Deo.

Gloria in excelsis Deo.

2. Shepherds, why this jubilee?

Why your joyous strains prolong?

What the gladsome tidings be

Which inspire your heav’nly song?

[Chorus]

Gloria in excelsis Deo.

Gloria in excelsis Deo.

3. Come to Bethlehem and see

Him whose birth the angels sing;

Come, adore on bended knee

Christ the Lord, the newborn King.

[Chorus]

Gloria in excelsis Deo.

Gloria in excelsis Deo.
