Lyrics

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–
Worship Christ, the new-born King.

Verse 2
Shepherds in the field abiding,
Watching o’er yoru flocks by night,
God with man is now residing;
Yonder shines the infant light:
Come and worship–
Worship Christ, the new-born King.

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