This song is based on a French carol called Les Anges dans nos campagnes (The Angels in our Countryside). The song has been changed over time. This is the most common English version. It was translated by James Chadwick in 1862. He was a Roman Catholic Bishop in northeast England.

Notes

*"Gloria in excelsis Deo" translates to, "Glory to God in the highest."

**Alternate line: "Jesus, Lord of heaven and earth".
