HEAVEN SENT


As the clock ticked off the hours
And the natal day drew near
The little angels all drew straws
To see who'd get to come down here
The Spiritual Guardians Of Peace
Raised their eyes to the steeple
That the right straw should be drawn
To bring a message of love to the people
To maintain the peace for God's chosen few
They said "It's time for a GIRL to be born"
To ease the pain the world's going through
It takes the gentle hand of a woman to
Remove The Thorn
