When the crimson sun had set
Now behind the Win'try sea.
On the bright and cold midnight
Burst a sound of heavenly glee;
Gloria in excelsis Deo, Gloria in excelsis Deo.
 
Shepherds watching by their fold
On the crisp and hoary plain,
In the sky, bright hosts espy,
Singing in a gladsome train,
Gloria in excelsis Deo, Gloria in excelsis Deo.
 
Where the manger crib is laid
In the city fair and free,
Hand in hand the shepherd band
Worship Christ on bended knee.
Gloria in excelsis Deo, Gloria in excelsis Deo.

Join with us in welcome song,
Ye who in Christ's home abide,
Sing the love of God above
Manifest at this glad tide.
Gloria in excelsis Deo, Gloria in excelsis Deo.
