  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.
    • Refrain:
      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.
  5. Sinners, wrung with true repentance,
    Doomed for guilt to endless pains,
    Justice now revokes the sentence,
    Mercy calls you; break your chains.
  6. Though an Infant now we view Him,
    He shall fill His Father’s throne,
    Gather all the nations to Him;
    Every knee shall then bow down:
  7. All creation, join in praising
    God, the Father, Spirit, Son,
    Evermore your voices raising
    To th’eternal Three in One.
