In Excelsis Gloria When Christ was born of Mary free In Bethlehem in that fair citie, Angels sungen with mirth and glee,

In Excelsis Gloria!

This King is comen to save (mans-kind
(Even) in Scripture as we find,
(Therefore) this song we have in mind,

In Excelsis Gloria!

(Grant us) in bliss to see thy face,
Where we may sing to thee solace,
In Excelsis Gloria!
