324. Angels from the realms of glory

1 Angels from the realms of glory,
wing your flight o'er all the earth;
ye who sang creation's story
now proclaim Messiah's birth:
[Refrain:]
Come and worship
Christ, the new-born King.
Come and worship,
worship Christ, the new-born King.

2 Shepherds in the field abiding,
watching o'er your flocks by night,
God with us is now residing,
yonder shines the infant Light: [Refrain]

3 Wise men, leave your contemplations;
brighter visions beam afar;
seek the great Desire of nations;
ye have seen his natal star: [Refrain]

4 Though an infant now we view him,
he will share his Father's throne,
gather all the nations to him;
every knee shall then bow down: [Refrain]

5 All creation, join in praising
God the Father, Spirit, Son,
evermore your voices raising
to the eternal Three in One: [Refrain]
