1. Christ is born of maiden fair;
Hark the heralds in the air,
Thus adoring descant there,
"In excelsis gloria."

2. Shepherds saw those Angels bright,
Carolling in glorious light;
"God, His Son, is born tonight,"
"In excelsis gloria."

3. Christ is come to save mankind,
As in holy page we find,
Therefore this song bear in mind,
"In excelsis gloria."

Sheet Music from Charles Hutchins, #339.
