We sang Angels From The Realms Of Glory at mgpc this morning.
Though it is more often associated with the tune REGENT SQUARE, it is also sung to GLORIA the tune for Angels We Have Heard On High.
It didn’t sound quite like the rendition by Katherine Jenkins below.
But it was still pretty good.
We sang the chorus in the lyrics on this page, not the ‘Gloria in excelsis Deo’ version that a lot of popular renditions have taken to using.
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.
Shepherds, in the field abiding,
watching o’er your flocks by night,
God with us 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:
