DIRECTIONS

1. From heaven high, O angels, come,
Eya, eya, susani, susani, susani.
Come music, song, come pipe and drum,
Alleluia, alleluia. Of Jesus sing and Maria.

2. Let every instrument join in,
Eya, eya, susani, susani, susani.
Bring lute and harp and violin,
Alleluia, alleluia. Of Jesus sing and Maria.

3. Send forth your voices louder yet,
Eya, eya, susani, susani, susani.
With organ and with flageolet,
Alleluia, alleluia. Of Jesus sing and Maria.

4. How heavenly must the music be,
Eya, eya, susani, susani, susani.
Because a heavenly Child is He,
Alleluia, alleluia. Of Jesus sing and Maria.

5. To men on earth all peace may be,
Eya, eya, susani, susani, susani.
And praise to God eternally,
Alleluia, alleluia. Of Jesus sing and Maria.
