C              G        C
Angels we have heard on high,
C               G           C
Singing sweetly through the night,

And the mountains in reply
C             G       C
Echoing their brave delight.

C                   G   C
Shepherds, why this jubilee?
C                  G     C
Why these songs of happy cheer?
C                     G       C
What great brightness did you see?
C                G       C
What glad tiding did you hear?

Come to Bethlehem and see
Him whose birth the angels sing;
Come, adore on bended knee
Christ, the Lord, the new-born King.

See him in a manger laid
Whom the angels praise above;
Mary, Joseph, lend your aid,
While we raise our hearts in love.
