Hark! the herald angels sing,
Glory to the newborn king!
Peace on earth and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled.
Joyful all ye nations rise,
Join the triumph of the skies,
With angelic host proclaim:
"Christ is born in Bethlehem"
 
God rest ye merry gentlemen,
Let nothing you dismay,
For Jesus Christ our Savior was born upon this day,
To save us all from Satan's power
When we were gone astray,
Oh, tidings of comfort and joy!
 
Away in a manger,
No crib for a bed,
The little lord Jesus lay down his sweet head.
The stars in the sky looked down where he lay,
The little lord Jesus asleep on the hay.
Silent night, holy night,
All is calm, all is bright.
Round yon Virgin, mother and child,
Holy infant so tender and mild.
Sleep in heavenly peace.
 
O come, all ye faithful,
Joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, o come ye to Bethlehem.
Come and behold him, born the king of angels,
O come let us adore him...
 
Good king Wenceslas looked out
On the feast of Stephen,
When the snow lay round about
Deep and crisp and even.
Brightly shone the moon that night,
Though the frost was cruel.
When a poor man came in sight,
Gathering winter fuel.
 
Angels we have heard on high,
Sweetly singing o'er the plain,
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains.
Gloria in Excelsis Deo

Wow...i did terribly. I love the classic religious Christmas Carols, but since they never get air play over the stupid pop Christmas songs, i don't hear them enough to absorb the lyrics. I know all of the friggin words to "Last Christmas i Gave you my Heart" and "All i Want for Christmas is You." Even though they SUUUUUUUUCK!

Classical music stations tend to broadcast quite a lot of carols over Christmas.

But this year they seem to be only playing instrumental versions. I agree with Buck, I couldn't find any playing the religious carols this year. I can only listen to "Santa Baby" so many times before I say, "Bah, humbug!"

Nice! I did decently. I would suggest either counting "looked" and "down" as separate answers, or making only one of them missing. I tried each of them multiple times but never together.

Can you add some time, and perhaps some alternative spellings for Excelsis? I probably spent the better part of 30 seconds and still didn't get it.

Great quiz! But what is Angels we have heard on high? Is it just an American carol because I've never heard or seen it anywhere in England.

I've never heard this carol/song either. As one of the answers is 'plain' I'm guessing it probably is known more in the US. Know all the others though.

According to Wikipedia, it is of French origin and the most common English version was translated to English in 1862 by a Roman Catholic bishop in northeast England. It quickly became popular in the West Country of England. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angels_We_Have_Heard_on_High

I'm born and bred in England and know it well. It's one of the most traditional of carols that I've known since I was knee high to a grasshopper.

The stars in the sky "look down" is also considered correct. The song is in present tense.

Actually, it's not. "Lay" is the past tense of "lie."

Powerful lyrics. Good King Wenceslas was a favorite Christmastime melody for me growing up, but it became a favorite carol as I got older and understood the meaning.

I only knew 4 (holy, bethlehem, adore and excelsis and had to look up the correct spelling for that one) I got 11 right though. The others just by using comon sense and seeing what would work in that sentence.
