AND THE ANGELS SING
Lyric by Johnny Mercer
We meet, and the angels sing,
The angels sing the sweetest song I've ever heard,
You speak, and the angels sing,
Or am I breathing music into ev'ry word,
Suddenly, the setting is strange,
I can see water and moonlight beaming,
Silver waves that break on some undiscovered shore,
Then suddenly, I see it all change,
Long winter nights with the candles gleaming,
Through it all your face that I adore,
You smile, and the angels sing,
And though it's just a gentle murmur at the start,
We kiss, and the angels sing,
And leave their music ringing in my heart.
May angels rest beside your door,
May you hear their voices sing.
May you feel their loving care for you,
May you hear their peace bells ring.
May angels always care for you,
And not let you trip and fall,
May they bear you up on angel's wings,
May they keep you standing tall.
May they whisper wisdom in your ear,
May they touch you when you need,
May they remove from you each trace of fear,
May they keep you from feeling greed.
May they fill you with their presence,
May they show you love untold,
May they always stand beside you
And make you ever bold.
May they teach you what you need to know
A boutlife here and here-after.
May they fill you always with their love
And give you the gift of laughter
When God Calls Little Children
When God calls little children
to dwell with Him above,
We mortals sometimes question
the wisdom of His love.
For no heartache compares with,
the death of one small child.
Who does so much to make our world,
seem so wonderful and mild.
Perhaps God tires of calling
the aged to His fold.
So He picks a rosebud
before it can grow old.
God knows how much we need them,
and so He takes but few.
To make the land of heaven
more beautiful to view.
Believing this is difficult
still somehow we must try.
The saddest word mankind knows
will always be Good-bye.
So when a little child departs,
we who are left behind,
Must realize God loves children.
ANGELS ARE HARD TO FIND!
