Angels We Have Heard On High

E B E
Angels we have heard on high
E B E
Sweetly singing o’er the plains,
C#m A E
And the mountains in reply
E B E
Echoing their joyous strains.

E C#m A B G#m A B E F#m G#m A C#m B


Glo - - - - - - - - - - - ria, in ex - cel - sis Deo!
E C#m A B G#m A B E F#m G#m A C#m B E
Glo - - - - - - - - - - - ria, in ex - cel - sis Deo!

E B E
Shepherds, why this jubilee?
E B E
Why your joyous strains prolong?
C#m A E
What the gladsome tidings be
E B E
Which inspire your heavenly song?

E B E
Come to Bethlehem and see
E B E
Him whose birth the angels sing;
C#m A E
Come, adore on bended knee,
E B E
Christ the Lord, the newborn King.
