ANGELS ministered to Jesus,

When the subtle tempter fled

From the mountain of temptation,

When his dart had vainly sped:

Down to earth they fly from heaven,

See, what crowds are gathered round,

And the scene of his fierce trial

Now becometh hallowed ground.

Angels ministered to Jesus,

In the garden, when he lay

Praying unto God his Father,

That the cup might pass away;

He was strengthened there to drink it.

For our fallen guilty race,

And his follower's purest feelings

Linger round that sacred place.

Angels ministered to Jesus 

On the morn he left the tomb,

When the dawn of day eternal 

Burst upon it cheerless gloom;

Down they struck the fearful soldiers,

Rolled the massive stone away,

And behold in death's dominions

Life now holds it sovereign sway.

Angels ministered to Jesus

When he took his upward flight

From the world he came to ransom,

To the glorious realms of light;

See, they form his willing escort

As his chariot mounts the sky,

And the golden gates of glory

At their challenge open fly.

They will minister to Jesus

When the skies are backward rolled,

And revealed high in heaven

All the world their Judge behold

They will gather all his children

To their dear Redeemer's side,

Free from earth and all its sorrows,

With him ever to abide.
