but for their graceful wings,
sweet gentle voices heaven brings
into earthly human ears,
to lift your burdens and your fears
upon the notes of a lullaby to heaven's gate,
when human strength cannot bare the weight.
These gentle beings lay your cares with a sigh
at the foot of one most high,
and there sing with joy, praise and celebration
and bow their heads in adoration,
humbly thankful to serve, and to lead;
God's own helping hands in times of need.
And when your heart again is light,
you are never out of sight;
always under the protective gaze
of ones directing all your days.
