  • Holy, Holy, Holy
    the whole earth
    angelic voices
    of celestial beings
    sing sweet Seraphim

    Please send us angels
    with wings like doves
    to sing the new day
    into existence
    brightly burning
    sentinels of the throne
    guardians of lost children
    bearing messages
    tidings of joy

    I want there to be angels
    I want them to be true
    here in this place of
    long shadows and
    half-truths, this place
    where bells no longer ring
    this mortal place, this dust
    where angels fear to tread
