Angels We Have Heard on High

Luke 2:9-10
And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 

Angels we have heard on high sweetly singing o'er the plains,
And the mountains in reply echoing their joyous strains.

~~~~~
Gloria, in excelesis Deo! Gloria, in excelesis Deo! 

~~~~~

Shepherd, why this jubilee? Why your joyous strains prolong? 
What the gladsome tidings be which inspire your heavenly song? 

~~~~~
Gloria, in excelesis Deo! Gloria, in excelesis Deo!  

~~~~~

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

~~~~~
Gloria, in excelesis Deo! Gloria, in excelesis Deo!

~~~~~
  See Him in a manger laid, whom the choirs of angels praise;
Mary, Joseph, lend your aid, while our hearts in love we raise.

~~~~~
Gloria, in excelesis Deo! Gloria, in excelesis Deo!  

I hope you have a wonderful week in Christ.

In the glow of His glory,
Ashley 
Luke 2:11-14
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will towards men.
