Hymn/Song Information

God hath sent His angels to the earth




God hath sent His angels
to the earth again,
Bringing joyful tidings
to the sons of men;
They who first at Christmas
thronged the heavenly way,
Now beside the tomb door
sit on Easter day.

Angels, sing His triumph
as you sang His birth,
“Christ the Lord is risen,
peace, goodwill on earth!”



In the dreadful desert,
where the Lord was tried,
There the faithful angels
gathered at His side;
And when, in the garden,
grief and pain and care
Bowed Him down with anguish,
they were with Him there.

Angels, sing His triumph
as you sang His birth,
“Christ the Lord is risen,
peace, goodwill on earth!”



Yet the Christ they honor
is the same Christ still
Who, in light and darkness,
did His Father’s will;
And the tomb, deserted,
shineth like the sky,
Since He passed
from out it, into victory.

Angels, sing His triumph
as you sang His birth,
“Christ the Lord is risen,
peace, goodwill on earth!”



God has still His angels,
helping at His word,
All His faithful children,
like their faithful Lord;
Soothing them in sorrow,
arming them in strife,
Opening wide the tomb doors,
leading into life.

Angels, sing His triumph
as you sang His birth,
“Christ the Lord is risen,
peace, goodwill on earth!”
