Waves of Faith – An Angel’s Hand
An angel whispered in my ear
Believe in me and have no fear
Come with me and take my hand
I will take you to another land
A place of peace a place of light
don’t be afraid just hold on tight
Your earth days are done but don’t be sad
Remember all the times you had
Loved one will join don’t despair
You have many in heaven waiting there
Your body dies your soul is free
That’s why you get to fly with me.
