Charles H. Gabriel (1856–1932)


Angels from Hea­ven a ca­rol are sing­ing,
Wonderful tid­ings of joy from above;
Down thro’ the dawn their sweet mes­sage is ring­ing,
Telling the news of mar­vel­ous love.


Jesus is ris­en, our Sav­ior is ris­en!
Sing, East­er an­gels, and teach us your song;
Jesus is ris­en, our Sav­ior is ris­en!
Praise and do­min­ion to Him shall be­long.

Angels im­mor­tal, in gar­ments of glo­ry,
White-robed and shin­ing with light from on high,
Chant their glad mes­sage, pro­claim­ing the sto­ry,
Spreading the word thro’ earth and the sky.


Angels of glo­ry, O mes­sen­gers roy­al,
Speak to us here, and your tid­ings im­part!
Teach us to praise Him, to ev­er be loy­al,
Be He alone en­throned in each heart.
