Wednesday Wallpaper: Gloria in Excelsis Deo

Scriptures: Luke 2:8-14

Shepherds, why this Jubilee?

The famous Christmas carol, Angels We Have Heard on High, was inspired by Luke’s account of Jesus’ birth. The shepherds were out keeping watch over their flock by night when an angel appeared to them announcing good news: “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” Suddenly, they saw a multitude of angels praising God: “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!” (Lk. 2:8-14). Let this wallpaper remind you to glorify God this Christmas.

Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing o’er the plain
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strain
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!

Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strains prolong?
What the gladsome tidings be?
Which inspire your heavenly song?
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!

Come to Bethlehem and see
Christ Whose birth the angels sing;
Come, adore on bended knee,
Christ, the Lord, the newborn King.
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!

See Him in a manger laid,
Jesus, Lord of heaven and earth;
Mary, Joseph, lend your aid,
With us sing our Savior’s birth.
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
