Words by James Montgomery (1771-1854), 1816Tune: REGENT SQUARE, by Henry Smart (1813-1879), 1867Key signature: B flat major (2 flats)Meter: 188.8.131.52. with RefrainPublic Domain1. 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 man 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.
