I was walkin'home from school On a cold winter day, Took a short cut through the woods And I lost my way. It was gettin' late, and I was scared and alone. Then a kind old man took my hand, and led me home. Mama couldn't see him, But he was standing there, And I knew in my heart He was the answer to my prayer.
[Chorus] 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 troubled times And had me down on my knees There's always been someone To 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 Someone light the way with just a single ray of hope.
They wear so many faces, Show up in the strangest places And grace us with their mercies in our time of need.
