And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy
that will be for all the people. ‎ For unto you is born this day in the city of David
a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” 
– Luke 2:10-11

Angels, from the Realms of Glory

Verse 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 newborn King!

Verse 2:
Shepherds, in the fields 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 newborn King!

Verse 3:
Sages, leave your contemplations,
Brighter visions beam afar;
Seek the great Desire of nations,
Ye have seen the Infant’s star:

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

Verse 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 newborn King!
