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:

Glo—ria in excelsis Deo! Glo—ria in excelsis Deo!

Shepherds, in the field abiding, watching o’er your flocks by night,
God with man is now residing; yonder shines the infant light: [Refrain]

Saints before the altar bending, Watching long in hope and fear;
Suddenly the Lord, descending, In his temple shall appear: [Refrain]

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: [Refrain]
