367. Angels from the Realms of Glroy

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.

2 Shepherds, in the fields abiding,
Watching o'er your flocks by night,
God on earth is now residing;
Yonder shines the infant light:
Come and worship, come and worship,
Worship Christ, the newborn 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 newborn King.

4 Though an infant now we view him,
He shall fill his Father's throne,
Gather all the nations to him;
Ev'ry knee shall then bow down:
Come and worship, come and worship,
Worship Christ, the newborn King.

5 All creation, join in praising
God, the Father, Spirit, Son,
Evermore your voices raising,
To the eternal Three-in-One:
Come and worship, come and worship,
Worship Christ, the newborn King.
