An Angel Returned

An Angel Returned
An angel returned
That night through the sky
But time it was short
He had to decide
And so as he flew
Back over the land
A gift for his Lord
Was there in his hand
It was the glow of a light
It was the heart of a song
It was the tear of a child
Where they never belonged
It was the wish of a soul
On an old neon light
And the Lord smiled at him
On that cold winter night
Hear as they ring through the night
Kyrie among nations
Kyrie among nations
Kyrie among nations
Here the bells ring through the night
Kyrie among nations
Kyrie among nations
Kyrie among nations
Hear as they ring through the night
Listen to the bells as they ring
Listen to the message they bring
Listen to the sound
As they sing as one voice in the night
Hoping that we’ll all understand
Every dream we have’s in our hands
And for every bell
May they ring all through the night
Kyrie among nations
Kyrie among nations
Kyrie among nations
Hear as they ring through the night
Kyrie among nations
Kyrie among nations
Kyrie among nations
Here as they ring through the night
Listen to the bells as they ring
Listen to the message they bring
Listen to the sound as they sing
As one voice in the night
Hoping that we’ll all understand
Every dream we have’s in our hands
And for every bell
May they ring all through your life
And so with his story over
And our bottle nearly through
I asked, did this really happen?
He swore every word was true
Then he said I see you’re puzzled
For your mind tells you to doubt me
That my story can’t be true
But your heart tells you, it might be
He then asked, did it entertain me
And I admitted it had charm
Then he said perhaps you have learned something
Or at worst I’ve done no harm
Then he rose up from his chair
And he said it’s time that he should leave
But may God keep and protect you
This and every Christmas Eve
Then he left through the front door
And I ran out to ask him back
But he was already gone
And stranger still he left no tracks
So I walked back to my home
Recalling all I’ve heard and seen
And for the first time since my childhood
That night I dreamed a Christmas dream
Merry Christmas!
