Angels

Luke 2:13-14
13.  And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host
      praising God, and saying,
 14.  Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

          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.

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

            Refrain
            Come and worship,
            Come and worship,
            Worship Christ,
            The newborn King.

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

            Refrain
            Come and worship,
            Come and worship,
            Worship Christ,
            The newborn King.

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

            Refrain
            Come and worship,
            Come and worship,
            Worship Christ,
            The newborn King.
