Angels We Have Heard On High
Words & Music:
Traditional French Carol
The lyricist & composer of this carol are unknown, although the tune is based on the French carol "Les Anges Dans Nos Campagnes". I am looking for a really nice arrangement of it for solo guitar.
D F#m A D
Angels we have heard on high,
D A D A D
Sweetly singing o'er the plains,
Bm F#m Bm A D
And the mountains in reply
D A D A D
Echoing their joyous strains.
D B Em A D G A D A D G D A
Glo-----------ria in Excelsis Deo,
D B Em A D G A D A D G D A D
Glo-----------ria in Excelsis De----o.
Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why your joyful strains prolong?
Say what may the tidings be,
Which inspire your heav'nly song?
Come to Bethlehem, and see
Him whose birth the angels sing;
Come, adore on bended knee
Christ the Lord, the newborn King.
See within a manger laid:
Jesus, Lord of heav'n and earth!
Mary, Joseph, lend your aid,
With us sing our Savior's birth.
