What does "angels prostrate fall" mean?

Postby konstanz » Wed Sep 14, 2011 1:02 pm

There is a christian hymn called Crown Him Lord of All, and in the first verse it sings "Let angels prostrate fall." Can someone please tell me what this means? Thanks!!

it means they go down onto their front sides on the ground- not actually falling down to the position. it is a sign of deep reverence and respect.

'Prostrate' is defined as: "Lying face down, as in submission or adoration." (Link for definition below).

One would assume that it means even angels will fall in submission/adoration before Him.

Typical absurdly verbose hymn writing.

It's trying to say let angels fall prostrate before God. Prostrate (noun) means lying down. Prostrate (verb) means to lie down.

It means that the angels lie down in front of God with their face to the floor.

If they wanted regular sex, they would fall supine (face up).
