The Word in Song



The Word in Song


Angels We Have Heard on High


Angels we have heard on high,

[in the Sky]

sweetly singing o’er the plains

[In the fields]

And the mountains in reply,

echoing their joyous strains.

[Praise is contagious]


Glo------ria!

[High honor earned by notable achievements]

In excelcis [excel] deo. [God]

Glo-------ria!

In excelcis deo.

Shepherds, [Lowest in Society] why this jubilee?

Why your joyous strains prolong?

[Q: Why?]

What the gladsome tidings be

Which inspire your heavenly song?

[Great joy for all people, which is the reason to…]

Glo------ria!

In excelcis deo.

Glo-------ria!

In excelcis deo.


Come to Bethlehem and see,

[Special invitation to the LOWEST]

Him whose birth the angels sing.


Glo------ria!

In excelcis deo.

Glo-------ria!

In excelcis deo.


Hark! the Herald Angels Sing

Hark! The herald angels sing,

Glory to the newborn King!

Peace on earth and mercy mild,

God and sinners reconciled.

[Theological PEACE]

Joyful all ye nations rise,

[He came for ALL]

Join the triumph of the skies,

With angelic host proclaim,

Christ is born in Bethlehem.

Hark! [LISTEN, Obey] The Herald angels sing,

Glory to the newborn King.


Christ by highest heaven adored,

Christ the everlasting Lord!

[Without time as we know it]

Late in time, behold Him come,

Offspring of a virgin’s womb.


Veiled in flesh the Godhead see!

Hail the incarnate deity!

Pleased as man [100%] with men to dwell,

Jesus our Emanuel! [100% “God with us”]


Hark! The Herald angels sing,

glory to the newborn King.


Mild He lays His glory by,

Born that man no more may die.

[“Even though you die, yet shall you live.”

–Jn 11:25]

Born to raise the sons on earth,

Born to give them second birth.

Hark! The Herald angels sing,

glory to the newborn King.

Silent Night


Silent night, holy night,

All is calm,

[Spiritually]

[Don’t over-Simplify, Over-Glamorize/Hallmark it,

it was physically hard for Mary.]

all is bright

‘Round yon virgin, mother and child,

Holy infant so tender and mild.

Sleep in heavenly peace,

Sleep in heavenly peace.

Silent night, holy night,

Shepherds Quake

[Do not be afraid of this visit from angels]

at the sight

Glories stream from heaven afar,

Heavenly [Angels] hosts sing alleluia

Christ, the Savior is born,

Christ, the Savior is born.


Silent night, holy night,

Son of God,

love’s pure light

Radiant beams

[From the Angels as “The glory of the Lord shown around them”]

from Thy holy face

With the dawn of redeeming grace

Jesus, Lord at Thy birth

Jesus, Lord at Thy birth

[Unique to Christianity]
