The Angel Gabriel From Heaven Came (Birina Gaztettobat Zegoen – 4 Verses) – Small Ensemble

The Angel Gabriel From Heaven Came Lyrics

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!

“For know a blessed mother thou shalt be,
All generations laud and honour thee;
Thy son shall be Emmanuel, by seers foretold,
Most highly favoured lady.” Gloria!

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

Of her, Emmanuel, the Christ, was born
In Bethlehem all on a Christmas morn,
And Christian folk through-out the world will ever say:
“Most highly favoured lady.” Gloria!
