Musical offering for the tenth day of Christmas / Friday happy dance

Angels from the realms of glory,
Hear our joyful song below;
For tonight we sing the story
Heard by shepherds long ago.
Though at first they trembled, fearing,
Wondrous tidings bid them rise;
Heavenly hosts then bright appearing
Sang these praises in the skies:
Gloria in excelsis Deo!
Peace on earth good will to men!
Gloria in excelsis Deo!
Hasten now to Bethlehem!

All good souls who’ve gone before us,
Hear the ancient Christmas lay;
On this night we join in chorus,
Love came down this Holy Day.
He awaits us in the manger
Smiling there in purest white.
Unto us He is no stranger,
But Creator, Life, and Light.

Gloria in excelsis Deo!
Peace on earth good will to men!
Gloria in excelsis Deo!
Hasten now to Bethlehem!

Heaven and nature here abiding,
Hear the chimes of ages ring;

Woods and rivers shout glad tidings,
Tell the wonders of your King.
Mountains cry aloud forever,
Solid rocks now weep for joy;
Sun, moon, stars all sing together.
Let this song our hearts employ:
Gloria in excelsis Deo!
Peace on earth good will to men!
Gloria in excelsis Deo!
Hasten now to Bethlehem!
