Angel's Singing

Today i heard a song
it's sounds filled the air
pain had been a friend to long
i have felt wrought with dispair

with angels singing a heavenly chorus
their light shined down upon me
as my body became porous
wondering how can this be

that an angels light was cast
to take away the pain
thinking i was safe at last
my tears fell like rain

i thank the lord for his great gift
that in a time of dark despair
i was given such a joyous lift
that my soul was in need of repair

may the angels keep on singing
the praise of the lord above
the words will keep on ringing
in the glory of his love
