377. 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:

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

2 Shepherds, in the fields 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;
Every knee shall then bow down: [Refrain]
