Angels From The Realms of Glory


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.

Shepherds, in the field abiding,
Watching o’er your flocks by night,
God with us is now residing;
Yonder shines the infant light:

Sages, leave your contemplations,
Brighter visions beam afar;
Seek the great Desire of nations;
Ye have seen His natal star.

Saints, before the altar bending,
Watching long in hope and fear;
Suddenly the Lord, descending,
In His temple shall appear.

Come and worship, come and worship,
Worship Christ, the newborn King.

Words: James Mont­gom­e­ry, 1816
Music: Re­gent Square, Hen­ry T. Smart

I do enjoy caroling and this carol is alway a standard. I heard it on the radio this morning and wanted to post the special words for ya'll. Here's the tune if you want to listen while you read:

I pray that all of you are enjoying this Christmas season and that you have a very blessed Lord's day!

Miss Laurie
