Upon that cold and wintry night,
he came us, our heart's delight,
born in a lowly cattle stall,
this precious babe, the Lord of all.
Sing gloria in excelsis Deo!

The virgin Mary, mother mild,
sang softly, sweetly to her child.
She laid him on a bed of straw,
and all who entered kneeled in awe.
Sing gloria in excelsis Deo!

To shepherds watching in the night
came angels robed in radiant light.
They sang of peace, good will and joy,
glad tidings of the holy boy!
Sing gloria in excelsis Deo!

Then from the East, led by a star,
three wise men journeyed from afar;
each brought a gift, a precious thing
to lay before the infant king!
Sing gloria in excelsis Deo!

Again we sing of him this night,
the holy chld, our heart's delight.
Come worship now, your praises bring
to Jesus Christ, the newborn king!
sing gloria in excelsis Deo!
