Gloria in Excelsis!

Who can know what angels think?
        Pure thought.
        Pure obedience.
        Pure delight.
        Pure worship.
We can but touch these for a moment –
        or rather, imagine that we have.

We marvel that God came to us,
        that Jesus was born;
        and marvel it was and is!

They saw their Lord and Creator leave them,
        saw Him go to Earth to become a man,
        a little lower than angels.

What could this mean?

What wondrous Love they saw when
        Love came down at Christmas; and
What could they do but what they did?
        Fill the whole sky – all the Heavens –
        with their song of worship, praise, and wonder.
