The Angels Came Calling - Poem by louis rams

the angels came calling on this
beautiful and glorious day.
as i turned my face to look the other way.
to see the reflections of my life gone by.

i saw every second of every minute of every day
all the words i had spoken
and things i had to say.

(this was the moment of truth and consequence)

the angels came calling
to show me what my life had been.
how i broke so many rules
and harbored so many sins.

i tried to convince myself
that my life was very good.
but! i stand by myself
as most sinners should.

i closed off my heart to all
the voices that surrounded me.
telling me of their aches and pains.
now i sit here crying
holding my head in shame

the angels are here to show me
that' i still have a chance you see'
to turn my life around
and follow the word of GOD.
he is willing to help me
and get a brand new start.

the angels are the lords messengers
and they carry his word to us
so if you want to survive
in HIM you put your trust.
