When we turn our hearts to our ancestors, something changes inside of us. We feel part of something greater than ourselves~Russell M. Nelson

Blog Caroling 2017-Angels We Have Heard on High

It's time again for the annual Blog Caroling event from FootnoteMaven. Each year she sends out an invitation for bloggers to post their favorite Christmas song with lyrics. We can then join together and sing along as we move from link to link added to the comments on her page.

This year, my carol is "Angels We Have Heard on High".
Our son Reagan passed away in November 2015. He loved this song and singing the chorus. "Gloria" was belted out whether we were singing in church or at home. 
We miss our boy, but memories flood back and bring peace as do the words of this song.
This one's for you, Reagan!

Angels We Have Heard on High


  1. 1. Angels we have heard on high
    Sweetly singing o’er the plains,
    And the mountains in reply
    Echoing their joyous strains.
  2. Gloria in excelsis Deo.
    Gloria in excelsis Deo.
  3. 2. Shepherds, why this jubilee?
    Why your joyous strains prolong?
    What the gladsome tidings be
    Which inspire your heav’nly song?
  4. Gloria in excelsis Deo.
    Gloria in excelsis Deo.
  5. 3. Come to Bethlehem and see
    Him whose birth the angels sing;
    Come, adore on bended knee
    Christ the Lord, the newborn King.
  6. Gloria in excelsis Deo.
    Gloria in excelsis Deo.
  7. Text: French carol, ca. 1862
    Music: French carol


  1. Pentatonix seems to be in the in group for blog carols this year. They certainly create beautiful renditions of Christmas carols. Merry Christmas!

    1. Great minds think alike! Merry Christmas to you too!

  2. I'm so sorry for the loss of your son, Cheri. I didn't know. It's amazing how music can help soothe our souls when we're sorrowing. I think Pentatonix does a great job with "Angels...." I hope you had a Merry Christmas.

    1. Thank you, Nancy. Music surely can help us in our time of need. We had a wonderful Christmas. I hope you did too.
