Angels From the Realms of Glory

 

Saints, before the altar bending, watching long in hope and fear. Suddenly the Lord, descending, in His temple shall appear. Come and worship. Come and worship. Worship Christ, the newborn King.

Sinners, wrung with true repentance, doomed for guilt to endless pains. Justice now revokes the sentence, mercy calls you - break your chains. Come and worship. Come and worship. Worship Christ, the newborn King.

Though an infant now we view Him, He shall fill His Father’s throne. Gather all the nations to Him. Every knee shall then bow down. Come and worship. Come and worship. Worship Christ, the newborn King.

All creation, join in praising God, the Father, Spirit, Son. Evermore your voices raising to the eternal Three in One. Come and worship. Come and worship. Worship Christ, the newborn King.

These verses of Angels From the Realms of Glory are rarely sung and often left out of hymnals. This Christmas hymn places humanity in a posture of confession and repentance - finding that the good news of Jesus’ birth will mean that “Justice now revokes the sentence, mercy calls you - break your chains!”

The Common Rule - Advent Edition! is a seasonal version of The Common Rule which provides a set of daily and seasonal practices for celebrating the King that has come and waiting for the King that will come again.
