Hoy en la Tierra

(Angels We Have Heard on High)

Here are the Spanish words for the popular Christmas carol "Angels We Have Heard on High," sometimes known as "In Excelsis Deo."

Hoy en la Tierra el cielo envia una capilla angelical
trayéndonos paz y alegría, cantando el himno triunfal.
Gloria a Dios en el cielo, gloria a Dios en el cielo.

Viene anunciar el nacimiento de nuestro amable Redentor.
Colmado de agradecimiento digamos todos con fervor,
Gloria a Dios en el cielo, gloria a Dios en el cielo.

Unos pastores que velaban en la pradera de Belén
vieron querubes que entonaban cantares para nuestro bien.
Gloria a Dios en el cielo, gloria a Dios en el cielo.

Translation

Today on the Earth the heavens send an angelical choir
bringing us peace and joy, singing the triumphal hymn.
Glory to God in heaven, glory to God in heaven.

It comes to announce the birth of our kind Redeemer.
Overflowing with pleasure it tells everyone fervently,
Glory to God in heaven, glory to God in heaven.

Shepherds staying awake in the Bethlehem meadow
see cherubs who singing songs for our benefit.
Glory to God in heaven, glory to God in heaven.
