Angels From the Realms of Glory History and Lyrics
Angels From the Realms of Glory was written by James Montgomery in 1816. An Irishman, he was raised by the state as his parents were missionaries who died in the field. He flunked out of seminary school, but soon found his calling in life.
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 new-born King.
Shepherds, in the field abiding,
Watching o'er your flocks by night,
God with man is now residing,
Yonder shines the infant light
Sages, leave your contemplations,
Brighter visions beam afar;
Seek the great Desire of nations,
Ye have seen His natal star
Saints before the altar bending,
Watching long in hope and fear,
Suddenly the Lord, descending,
In His temple shall appear
Sinners, wrung with true repentance,
Doomed for guilt to endless pains,
Justice now revokes the sentence,
Mercy calls you, break your chains
