Gloria in Excelsis Deo
Angels we have heard on high, sweetly singing over the plains; and the mountains in reply, echoing their joyous strains, “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!
Luke 2:8-15 – “And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. 10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. 12 And this [shall be] a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, 14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. 15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.”
Come to Bethlehem to see Him Whose birth the angels sing. Come, adore on bended knee, Christ the Lord the newborn King! Gloria in excelsis Deo! Did you know: “Gloria in excelsis Deo” means “Glory in the highest degree”
