Angels From the Realms of Glory

Written by Scottish poet, James Montgomery, this hymn was first printed in the Sheffield Iris on December 24, 1816.  Included in one of the first hymnbooks in the Church of England, it had a wide circulation in both England and America.  Formerly it was sung to the melody of an old French carol; but most sing it to music by Henry Smart.
