Contents of's Baptist Hymnal materials

1.	Angels we have heard on high, 
	Sweetly singing o'er the plains: 
	And the mountains in reply, 
	Echoing their joyous strains. 

2.	Shepherds, why this jubilee? 
	Why your joyous strains prolong? 
	What the gladsome tidings be 
	Which inspire your heav'nly song? 

3.	Come to Bethlehem, and see 
	Him whose birth the angels sing: 
	Come, adore on bended knee 
	Christ the Lord, the newborn King. 

4.	See Him in a manger laid, 
	Whom the choirs of angels praise; 
	Mary, Joseph, lend your aid, 
	While our hearts in love we raise. 

	In excelsis Deo! 
	In excelsis Deo!
