In Excelsis Gloria
Anonymous

When Christ was born of Mary free,
In Bethlehem in that fair city,
Angels sung e'er with mirth and glee,

Chorus
In excelsis gloria,
In excelsis gloria,
In excelsis gloria,
In excelsis gloria.

Herdmen beheld these angels bright-
To them appeared with great light,
And said, "God's son is born this night."

Chorus

This King is come to save His kind,
In the Scripture as we find;
Therefore this song we have in mind:

Chorus

Then, dear Lord, for Thy great grace,
Grant us the bliss to see Thy face,
Where we may sing to Thy solace:

Chorus
