1. Christ is born this evening,
Let us go rejoicing!
Though the night so gloomy,
Day will soon be dawning!

Angels from on high are singing
To the One who comes from heaven:
"Gloria, Gloria, Gloria,
In excelsis Deo!

2. Shepherds, hasten yonder,
Where the Babe most holy,
In this cold December,
Lies in manger lowly.

See the star on high is gleaming
O'er the lovely Infant beaming!
"Gloria, Gloria, Gloria,
In excelsis Deo!

O'er the lovely Infant beaming!
