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!_
