Gloria

Ellen Reed

<bgsound SRC="../YuleMIDI/gloria.mid" loop=4>
Tune:  "Gloria in Excelsius Deo"

Snow lies deep upon the Earth
Still our voices warmly sing
Heralding the glorious birth
Of the Child, the Winter King

Chorus:

Glo -- ria!
In excelsis Deo!
Glo -- ria!
In excelsis Dea!

Our triumphant voices claim
Joy and hope and love renewed
And our Lady's glad refrain
Answer Winter's solitude

Chorus

In Her arms a holy Child
Promises a glowing Light
Through the winter wind so wild
He proclaims the growing Light.

Chorus

Now the turning of the year
Of the greater Turning sings
Passing age of cold and fear
Soon our golden summer brings.
