LYRICS

The angel Gabriel from heaven came
His wings as drifted snow
His eyes as flame
“All hail” said he “thou blessed mother Mary
Most highly favoured lady, ” Gloria, Gloria

“For known a blessed mother thou shalt be
All generations laud and honor thee
Thy Son shall be Emanuel
By seers foretold
Most highly favoured lady, ” Gloria, Gloria

Then gentle Mary meekly bowed her head
“To me be as it pleaseth God, ” she said,
“My soul shall laud and magnify His holy name.”
Most highly favored lady, Gloria, Gloria

Of here Emmanuel the Christ was born
in Bethlehem all on a Christmas morn
and Christian folk throughout the world shall ever say
Most highly favoured lady, ” Gloria, Gloria
