136. 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:
Come and worship, Come and worship;
Worship Christ, the new-born King.

2 Shepherds in the field abiding,
Watching o'er your flocks by night,
God with man is now residing,
Yonder shines the Infant Light:
Come and worship, Come and worship;
Worship Christ the new-born King.

3 Sages, leave your contemplations,
Brighter visions beam afar;
Seek the great Desire of nations,
Ye have seen His natal star:
Come and worship, Come and worship;
Worship Christ the new-born King.

4 Saints before the altar bending,
Watching long in hope and fear,
Suddenly the Lord, descending
In His temple shall appear:
Come and worship, Come and worship;
Worship Christ the new-born King.

Amen.
