The Angel Gabriel

  1. The angel Gabriel, from heaven came,
    His wings as drifted snow,
    His eyes as flame.
    "All hail," said he,
    "Thou lowly maiden, Mary."
    Most highly favoured lady! Gloria!
  2. "For known a blessèd Mother
    Thou shalt be;
    All generations laud
    And honour thee.
    Thy Son shall be Emmanuel,
    By seers foretold."
    Most highly favoured lady! Gloria!
  3. 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 favoured lady! Gloria!
  4. Of her, Emmanuel,
    The Christ, was born
    In Bethlehem, all on a Christmas morn;
    And Christian folk throughout the world
    Will ever say:
    Most highly favoured lady! Gloria!
