In Excelsis Gloria






When Christ was born of Mary free,
In Bethlehem, in that fair citie,
Angels sang there with mirth and glee,
_In Excelsis Gloria!_

Herdsmen beheld these angels bright,
To them appearing with great light,
Who said, God's Son is born this night,
_In Excelsis Gloria!_

This King is come to save mankind,
As in Scripture truths we find,
Therefore this song have we in mind,
_In Excelsis Gloria!_

Then, dear Lord, for Thy great grace,
Grant us the bliss to see Thy face,
That we may sing to Thy solace,
_In Excelsis Gloria!_
