lyrics

Angels we have heard on high, sweetly singing o’er the plains.
And the mountains in reply, echoing their joyous strains
Glo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ri-a, in excelsis Deo!
Glo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ri-a, in excelsis Deo!

Shepherds, why this jubilee? Why your joyous strains prolong?
What the gladsome tidings be, which inspire your heav’nly song?
Glo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ri-a, in excelsis Deo!
Glo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ri-a, in excelsis Deo!

Come to Bethlehem and see Christ Whose birth the angels sing.
Come, adore on bended knee, Christ, the Lord, the newborn King.
Glo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ri-a, in excelsis Deo!
Glo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ri-a, 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.
Glo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ri-a, in excelsis Deo!
Glo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ri-a, in excelsis Deo!

about

Vicki Morrison Goble Minnesota

It brings me joy to produce beautiful melodies with thoughtful lyrics focused on uplifting themes that speak to the peacemakers, lovers, and helpers in all of us. I use music as a positive influence in my life and in the lives of others and as a means to encourage myself and others to be active participants in life, rather than only observers. It is never too late to try something new! ... more
