If You Were Given Angel’s Wings
If you were given angel’s wings
So you could fly to Heaven’s shore,
Would you fly with the wings of an angel,
Or stay on this Earth and pray to love it a little more?
If you were offered the Holy Grail,
And you sipped the nectar it holds,
Would you seek to recreate its magic,
And sell it to others as a bliss they should know?
If you were lifted up to Heaven,
And the glorious light of the throne of God, Would you stay there in the kingdom of love,
Or return and whisper the secrets you could tell?
If enough of us knew the blessings
That the Blessed angels all sing of,
And if there were a perch in Heaven,
We could find that place and see above it all.
If you really listen,
Can you hear the angels sing?
And can you fly with those feathers of the angels’ wings, And capture the magic that they bring?
For their sweet, sweet song can lead us To a way to listen with Holy Spirit song And find wings to fly high above
And discover the miracle of divine Love
But I’m not quite ready to leave just yet,
So I’ll watch from the wings and sigh,
To meet them at our appointed time, When it’s time for me to fly.
If you were given angel’s wings,
Would you choose to stay or go?
Or just recall the visitation
the Queen of Angels brings
