Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.@Luke 2:14

Warren R. Yeakel, 1896.

Estonia William A. Pickell (🔊 pdf nwc).

Angel messenger sent earthward,
Angel host attendant came;
Angel choir and angel carol,
Angel message to proclaim.

Refrain

Fear ye not! behold, I bring you
These good tidings of great joy.

Gloria in excelsis Deo,
The angelic song employ.

Unto you is born a Savior,
Unto us a Son is giv’n
;
Angels catch the angel message,
Angels voice that theme to Heav’n.

Refrain

Shepherds hear the angel message,
As they watch upon the plain;
With supernal light illumined,
And they heard the sweet refrain:

Refrain

Angels and archangels hymning,
Lo, the hills reverberate—
Angel message to us bringing,
God the Son is incarnate.
