An angel came to me
It was on Christmas Eve,
I was awakened by singing
To give and to receive.
She was an angel of beauty
With talking eyes so blue,
That when I looked at her
I felt peaceful right through.
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.
She said I am not here to offer you money
So, you can forget about gold,
I can't grant you just anything
And neither can I grant you living to be old.
I can grant you a child of beauty
Who was born on Christmas day,
He is your Lord and saviour
Who has helped you along life's way.
He has carried you in times of trouble
He has loved you all your life,
In the darkest hours of depression
He has comforted you in all your strife.
I said yes, without him I would be lost
I said my wish would be to help others,
Please grant me the wish of compassion
So, I can help my sisters and brothers.
The angel kissed me gently on the cheek
In the bright light she smiled and was gone,
The sheer joy I felt on this Christmas Eve
Was one of calm and peace the whole night long.
