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:

	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: [Refrain]

3	Sages, leave your contemplations, 
	brighter visions beam afar; 
	seek the great Desire of nations; 
	ye have seen his natal star: [Refrain]

4.	Saints, before the altar bending, 
	watching long in hope and fear; 
	suddenly the Lord, descending, 
	in his temple shall appear:
