I asked a child why he felt so sad,
His words took me by surprise...
He said he needed to kiss an angel,
To dry away his tears~
And a hug to feel loved.
He said he was lost,
And dreamt an angel could help him find his way.
I tried my best to cheer him up, to make him laugh.
As I spoke to him a stillness came over the earth,
A bright light whispered as it shone:
“We need angels in disguise”...
His tears were wiped away;
He was hugged and he was loved.
And most of all, he is saved.
We need angels in disguise;
Gentle hearts who still believe…
Believe in the miracle of faith,
Believe in dreams...
To live each day speaking
And spreading the Word.
