Song Meaning
Verse 1
There've been times, when I thought I heard angels
And I must admit, it took me by surprise
I heard rhythm, and the fullness of life
So rich, it brought tears to my eyes
Verse 2
There was a time, I was sure I heard angels
It was a sound tinged with sadness, but loaded with the joy
Full of rhythm, and oh such music
Kind of streetwise jubilation at the coming of that blessed boy
Verse 3
Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing o´er the plains
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strain
Verse 4
Gloria, in excel sis deo
Gloria, in excel sis deo, oh
Verse 5
Shepherds why this jubilee
Why your joyous strains prolong
What the gladsome tidings be
Which inspire your heav´nly song
Verse 6
Gloria, in excel sis deo
Gloria, in excel sis deo, oh
Verse 7
Come to Bethlehem and see
Him whose birth the angels sing
Come adore on bended knee
Christ the lord, the new born king
Verse 8
Gloria, in excel sis deo
Gloria, in excel sis deo, oh
Verse 9
Angels we have heard on high
Verse 10
Angels we have heard on high, (Gloria) [Repeat: x4]
Verse 11
Angels we have heard
