Sweetly singing o’er the plains,
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains.
Gloria in excelsis Deo,
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strains prolong?
What the gladsome tidings be
Which inspire your heavenly song?
Come to Bethlehem and see
Him whose birth the angels sing;
Come, adore on bended knee
Christ the Lord, the newborn King.
See Him in a manger laid,
Whom the choirs of angels praise;
Mary, Joseph, lend your aid,
While our hearts in love we raise.
Bethani learned this hymn at the age of three. It was her favorite, and it was so cute to hear her singing it :)! Abbi only has the chorus memorized, but it is now her favorite Christmas song, as well :). Emmi's favorite Christmas song is "The Little Drummer Boy", thanks to Veggietales new movie, "The Little Drummer Boy", haha :)! She is so cute... "I pay for yooooo... pum, pum, pum!
I love to hear all the little voices singing :)!!!
