1Angels, 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 Newborn King!
2Shepherds, in the fields abiding,
Watching o’er your flocks by night,
God with man is now residing,
Yonder shines the Heavenly-Light:
Come and worship!
Worship Christ, the Newborn King!
3Saints, 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 Newborn King!
4Saints and Angels join in praising
Thee, the Father, Spirit, Son,
Evermore their voices raising
To the Eternal Three in One;
Come and worship!
Worship Christ, the Newborn King!
