French: LES ANGES DANS NOS CAMPAGNES

ANGELS WE HAVE HEARD ON HIGH


1 Angels we have heard on high,
Sweetly singing o'er the plain;
And the mountains in reply
Echo back their joyous strain.
(Refrain)
Glória in excélsis Deo!
Glória in excélsis Deo!
2 Shepherds why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strain prolong?
Say what may the tidings be
Which inspire your heav'nly song.

Glória in excélsis Deo!
Glória in excélsis Deo!
3 Come to Bethlehem come and see
Him whose birth the angels sing;
Come adore on bended knee,
Christ the Lord, the newborn King.

Glória in excélsis Deo!
Glória in excélsis Deo!
