Angels of Christmas

Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing o'er the plains,
And the mountains in reply,
Echoing their joyous strains
-
Gloria in excelsis Deo
Gloria in excelsis Deo!
-
Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strains prolong?
What the gladsome tidings be
That inspire your heav'nly song?
Come to Bethlehem and see
Him whose birth the angels sing
Come, adore on bended knee,
Christ the Lord, the newborn King!
-
Gloria in excelsis Deo
Gloria in excelsis Deo!
-
Have you heard this sung by Andrea Bocelli?
B E A U T I F U L !!!

Three more from my Christmas angel collection.
That last one, well, who could pass up one with a
leopard-print-trimmed coat?!?!?!
(and hat)
(.... obviously, not me! .... : )

-
"Gloria in excelsis Deo" means
"Glory to God in the Highest"

Beautiful collection!!! I have a collection of angels (among many other collections) & it is sooooooooooo important the FACE (same for my Santa's the face must be perfect). There are so many beautifuly dress angels with ugly faces but, these are treasures. THANK YOU for sharing! I'll tell you a little seceret... we are starting to puppy shop. It has almost been a year since we lost our precious Reba (& your painting still brings such joy to me) & I am a bit hesitant. But, HUBBY is pushing for a new fur baby. I'll keep you posted.HUGS!
