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
