From the recording Next Phase

Lyrics

An angel of God stayed the hand of Abraham and saved little Isaac’s life
The angel Gabriel brought Mary the news
Told Joseph, “Take this girl for your wife.”

There are angels of darkness, angels of light, would-be angels playing a part
But the only angel that’s real to me
Is the angel in my heart

They say the archangel Michael drove Satan from heaven
And Moroni saved the golden plates
Cherubim, seraphim and angels of glory
Will welcome us at heaven’s gate

There are guardian angels to protect us from harm
Angels sweetly strumming their harps
But the only angel that’s real to me
Is the angel in my heart

You can believe in angels as a matter of faith, but me, I’m a cynical guy
I’d rather put my faith in people I know and things I see with my own two eyes

But if angels are beings covered in grace
Who guide us every step of the way
Shine a special light, show us all God’s glory and stand beside us every day

Then I believe in angels, the angel I know,
The angel with me from the start
The angel Louise, the only angel I need
She’s the angel in my heart

She’s a shining angel, bathed in grace
And she was with me from the start
The sweet angel Louise, the only angel I need
She’s the angel in my heart
She’s the angel in my heart
She’s the angel in my heart
