229. 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 newborn King!

2 Shepherds, in the field abiding,
watching o'er your flocks by night,
God with us is now residing;
yonder shines the infant Light:

3 Sages, leave your contemplations,
brighter visions beam afar;
seek the great Desire of Nations;
ye have seen his natal star:

4 Saints, before the altar bending,
watching long in hope and fear,
suddenly the Lord, descending,
in his temple shall appear:
