I was walking home from school
On a hot summer day
Took a short cut through the woods
And I lost my way
It was getting late
And I was scared and all alone
Then a kind old man
Took my hand and led me home
Now momma couldn’t see him
Oh but he was standing there
And I knew in my heart
He was the answer to my prayers

Oh I believe there are angels among us
Sent down to us from somewhere up above
They come to you and me
In our darkest hours
To show us how to live
To teach us how to give
To guide us with a light of love

When life held trouble times
And had me down on my knees
There’s always been someone
Come along and comfort me
A kind word from a stranger
To lend a helping hand
A phone call from a friend
Just to say I understand
Now ain’t it kind of funny
At the dark end of the road
That someone lights the way
With just a single way of hope


They wear so many faces
Show up in the strangest places
To grace us with their mercy
In our time of need
To guide us with a light of love......
