Angels Sent Calling
"Gabriel, it's time to go.
"Pass on the Word I've given you.
"Go ahead of the heavenly host,
"You have a special job to do."
He flew down through the universe
Passing planets and stars so bright
Heading for the dark side of earth
Brightening the sky with heavenly light
The angel found the roaming shepherds,
Exactly where God said he would.
So frightened by the angel's sight
The shepherds froze where each one stood
The heavenly hosts soon gathered 'round
To join the angel and help him say
"Glory to the Most High God,
"For peace has come to man today."
When done the angels left the peasants
Returning home from whence they came.
Though puzzled by the speech they gave
Their task was finished just the same.
