1.An-gels, from the realms of glo-ry,
Wing your flight o'er all the earth;
Ye who sang cre-a-tion's sto-ry,
Now pro-claim Mes-si-ah's birth :
Refrain
Come and wor-ship,
Come and wor-ship
Wor-ship Christ, the new born King.
2.Shep-herds, in the fields a-bid-ing.
Watch-ing o'er your flocks by night,
God with man is now re-sid-ing,
Yon-der shines the in-fant light;
Refrain
3.Sa-ges, leave your con-tem-pla-tions,
Bright-er vi-sions beam a - far;
Seek the great De - sire of na-tions,
Ye have seen his na-tal star:
4.Saints be-fore the al-tar bend-ing,
Watch-ing long in beam a - far;
Seek the great De-sire of na-tions,
hope and fear, Sud-den-ly the Lord, de-scend-ing,
In his tem-ple shall ap-pear:
Refrain
A-men
