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.

~John F. Connor
