An angel came to me
It was on Christmas Eve,
I was awakened by singing
To give and to recieve.
She was an angel of beauty
With talking eyes so blue,
That when you looked at here
A beautiful peace came to you.
She said I am a Christmas angel
Come to grant you a wish,
Be very careful what you wish for
It will come true when I give you a kiss.
I'm not here to offer you money
So you can forget about gold,
I can't grant you iust anything
Neither can I grant you, living to be old.
I can grant you a child of beauty
Who was born on Chrismas day,
He is your lord and saviour
Who has helped you along life's way.
He gas carried you in times of trouble
He has loved you all your life,
In the darkest hours of depression
He has comforted you in your strife.
I said yes, I know without him I'd be lost
I said my wish would be to help other's
Please grant me the wish of compassion
Through my writing I can help my sisters and brothers.
The angel kissed me gently on the cheek
And in a moment she smiled and was gone,
The sheer joy I felt on that Christmas Eve
Was one of beauty and peace the whole night long.
