Angels from the realms…new words for an old tune — Christine & Ted Haines, UK

Written on the occasion of an Angel Festival in Salisbury, Wiltshire, UK

 

Angels from the realms of glory

Wing your flight around this place,

You who sang creations story,

Bless our festival / [worship here] with grace

Gloria….

In excelsis deo

 

All who seek communication

With humanity that cares,

Turn your mobiles off and listen

To the One who hears our prayers.

Gloria ….

 

Shoppers, leave your present buying

For the people you hold dear,

Seek the true Desire of nations

For the real Christmas cheer.

Gloria …

 

We in church have heard the story

Of Messiah’s humble birth.

We must take to all the city

Gods great love and all its worth.

Gloria……
