Angels from the realms of glory,

Wing your flight oer all the earth;

Ye who sang creations story

Now proclaim Messiahs birth.

Come and worship,

come and worship,

Worship Christ, the newborn King.

Shepherds, in the field abiding,

Watching oer 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.

Come and worship,

come and worship,

Worship Christ, the newborn King.

Saints, before the altar bending,

Watching long in hope and fear;

Suddenly the Lord, descending,

In His temple shall appear.

Though an Infant now we view Him,

He will share His Fathers throne;

Gather all the nations to Him;

Every knee shall then bow down:

Come and worship,

come and worship,

Worship Christ, the newborn King.

Come and worship,

come and worship,

Worship Christ, the newborn King.

Angels, from the Realms of Glory

How my happy heart rejoices


I can hear the angel voices
"Christ is born" they all are singing
From the sky this good news bringing
Let the earth rejoice
O come and lift your voices

Christ the Lord is born today


He came from heaven's throne
God is born a man today
To bring His children home
To bring His children home

Death and darkness surely tremble


Light has come to all the people
The Lion comes to crush the serpent
He comes a Lamb, a lowly servant
Let the earth rejoice
O come and lift your voices

Christ the Lord is born today


He came from heaven's throne
God is born a man today
To bring His children home
To bring His children home

God has sent His greatest treasure


Shown His love in greatest measure
Sending Christ to bleed and suer
Purchasing our joy forever
Let the earth rejoice
O come and lift your voices

Christ the Lord is born today


He came from heaven's throne
God is born a man today
To bring His children home

Christ the Lord is born today


He came from heaven's throne
God is born a man today
To bring His children home
To bring His children home

Christ the Lord Is Born Today

Advent Reading

Gods Promise: It Will Happen

in Bethlehem

Last week we lit the second advent candle. We


were reminded of the Gods faithfulness to his
promises, and their fulfillment in Immanuel. This
week we light the third advent candle, and see
Gods promise that the Messiah would be born
in Bethlehem.

Micah 5:1-2

Now muster your troops, O daughter of troops;


siege is laid against us; with a rod they strike the
judge of Israel on the cheek. But you, O
Bethlehem Ephrathah, who are too little to be
among the clans of Judah, from you shall come
forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel,
whose coming forth is from of old, from ancient
days.

A boy named David was born in the district of


Ephrathah in Bethlehem and grew up tending
his father Jesses sheep. When the time came
for Samuel to anoint a new king over Israel, God
sent him to Jesses house to anoint one of his
sons. The unlikely ruler would be David. He
would become the greatest king of Israel, and
Bethlehem is now known as the City of David.

Long after Davids reign, Micah foretold that


God would again choose a king from
Bethlehem, in the land of Ephrathah. Many
years would pass before wise men from the East
followed a star in search of the newborn king of
the Jews. After meeting with these men, King
Herod called for the scribes and chief priests
and asked them what they knew. These
religious leaders directed Herods attention to
Micahs prophecy, and to Bethlehem.

Gods promise was fulfilled; as a ruler would


again come from this insignificant town and
once again Gods choice involved the most
unlikely beginninga baby, born in a stable.

The Son of God came down

and laid aside His crown

Born without great renown,

this Sovereign One

All holiness and might,

all glory shining bright

Have come to earth this night

in Marys son

O come, let us adore

O Christ the Lord,

our hope and Savior

Son of God yet made like us

O Christ the Lord,

our King adored

Born a child, our Lord Jesus

Messiah born so small,

asleep in cattle stall

Come to redeem our fall,

nailed to a tree

This tiny, helpless child

through death would reconcile

The holy God and vile,

His grace so free

O come, let us adore

O Christ the Lord,

our hope and Savior

Son of God yet made like us

O Christ the Lord,

our King adored

Born a child, our Lord

O Christ the Lord,

our hope and Savior

Son of God yet made like us

O Christ the Lord,

our King adored

Born a child, our Lord Jesus

The Son of God Came Down

What Child is this Who, laid to rest

On Marys lap is sleeping?

Whom angels greet

with anthems sweet

While shepherds watch are keeping?

This, this is Christ the King

Whom shepherds guard

and angels sing

Haste, haste, to bring Him laud

The Babe, the Son of Mary

Why lies He in such mean estate

Where ox and lamb are feeding?

Good Christian, fear, for sinners here

The silent Word is pleading

Nails, spear shall pierce Him through

The cross be borne for me, for you

Hail, hail the Word made flesh

The Babe, the Son of Mary

So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh

Come peasant, king to own Him

The King of kings salvation brings

Let loving hearts enthrone Him

Raise, raise a song on high

The virgin sings her lullaby

Joy, joy for Christ is born

The Babe, the Son of Mary

What Child Is This?

All the earth rejoice

Your Creator reigns

As the only awesome God

The Alpha and the Omega

Who was, is, and is to come

Let the oceans roar

and the mountains sing

He provides for all He has made

So be comforted

as He rules with grace

Rejoice, all the earth, rejoice

All the world rejoice

For the baby comes

As a humble prince in the night

The Word made flesh, Emmanuel

The Everlasting Light

Let the warmth of heaven

reach the coldest heart

With the gospel of His grace

For His heel will bruise

the serpents head

Rejoice, all the world, rejoice

All the church rejoice

For your King returns

On a white horse wearing a crown

He will break the sky

with the angels shout

Descending from the clouds

Then the dead will rise

from the land and sea

All His people will ascend

We will reign with Him for eternity

Rejoice, all the church, rejoice

Then the dead will rise

from the land and sea

All His people will ascend

We will reign with Him for eternity

Rejoice, all the church, rejoice

Rejoice
