Ding dong! merrily on high (Bransle De L’Official)

Ding dong! merrily on high Lyrics

Ding dong merrily on high,
In heav’n the bells are ringing:
Ding dong! verily the sky
Is riv’n with angel singing.
Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis!

E’en so here below, below,
Let steeple bells be swungen,
And “Io, io, io!”
By priest and people sungen.
Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis!

Pray you, dutifully prime
Your matin chime, ye ringers;
May you beautifully rime
Your evetime song, ye singers.
Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis!

Angels from the realms of glory (Iris) – Organ

Lyrics

Angels from the realms of glory,
Wing your flight o’er all the earth;
Ye who sang creation’s story,
Now proclaim Messiah’s birth:
Come and worship, Christ, the new-born King!
Come and worship, worship Christ, the new-born King!

Shepherds, in the fields abiding,
Watching o’er your flocks by night,
God with man is now residing,
Yonder shines the infant Light:
Come and worship, Christ, the new-born King!
Come and worship, worship Christ, the new-born King!

Sages, leave your contemplations,
Brighter visions beam afar;
Seek the great Desire of Nations,
Ye have seen His natal star:
Come and worship, Christ, the new-born King!
Come and worship, worship Christ, the new-born King!

Saints before the altar bending,
Watching long in hope and fear,
Suddenly the Lord, descending,
In His temple shall appear:
Come and worship, Christ, the new-born King!
Come and worship, worship Christ, the new-born King!

Though an infant now we view Him,
He shall fill His Father’s throne,
Gather all the nations to him;
Ev’ry knee shall then bow down:
Come and worship, Christ, the new-born King!
Come and worship, worship Christ, the new-born King!
