Angel messenger sent earthward,
Angel host attendant came;
Angel choir and angel carol,
Angel message to proclaim.
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.
Shepherds hear the angel message,
As they watch upon the plain;
With supernal light illumined,
And they heard the sweet refrain:
Angels and archangels hymning,
Lo, the hills reverberate—
Angel message to us bringing,
God the Son is incarnate.
