SONG OF ANGELS




Angels in bright attire
Descend from heaven to earth,
And spread the joyful news
Of our Redeemer’s birth:
Born in a house
Where oxen fed.
A manger was
His lowly bed.


Glory to God, they sing
In most exalted strains,
Peace and good will to men
So long as Jesus reigns:
And reign he shall
From shore to shore,
Till sun and moon
Shall shine no more.


We’ll join the heavenly song,
And sound his name abroad;
Welcome, the wondrous Man,
The great incarnate God:
Hail, source divine
Of life and joy,
Thy praise shall still
Our lips employ.


For love so great as thine,
Ourselves to thee we give;
‘Tis all thou dost demand,
Nor less wilt thou receive:
Before thy feet,
We prostrate fall:
Accept, dear Lord,
Our little all.
