358. Angels, from the Realms of Glory

1 Angels from the realms of glory,
Wing your flight o'er all the earth;
You who sang creation's story,
Now proclaim Messiah's birth:

Come and worship, come and worship,
Worship Christ, the newborn King.

2 Shepherds, in the field abiding,
Watching o'er your flocks by night,
God on earth is now residing;
Yonder shines the infant light: (Refrain)

3 Sages, leave your contemplations,
Brighter visions beam afar;
Seek the great Desire of nations,
You have seen His morning star: (Refrain)

4 Though an infant now we view him,
He shall fill his heav'nly throne,
Gather all the nations to him;
Ev'ry knee shall then bow down: (Refrain)
