"Angels We Have Heard on High" is a Christmas carol. The words of the song are based on a traditional French carol known as "Les Anges dans nos campagnes" (literally, "Angels in our countryside"). Its most common English version was translated in 1862 by James Chadwick. Sawyer Brown recorded the song for their 1997 Christmas album Hallelujah He is Born.



Angles we have heard on high
Sweetly singing o'er the plains
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains
Gloria in excelsis deo
Gloria in excelsis deo

Shepherds, why this jubilee
Why your joyous strains prolong
What the gladsome tidings be
Which inspire your heavenly song
Gloria in excelsis deo
Gloria in excelsis deo

Come to Bethlehem and see
Him whose birth the angles sing
Come adore on bended knee
Christ the Lord, our newborn King
Gloria in excelsis deo
Gloria in excelsis deo

Gloria (Angles we have heard on high)
Gloria (Sweetly singing o'er the plains)
Gloria (And the mountains in reply)
Gloria (Echoing their joyous strains)
