Angels Among Us

One of my all time favorite songs by Alabama called "Angels Among Us". I truly believe that angels walk amongst us and that they appear as every day people to us. We often just don't see them and fail to even believe that this takes place. The message in this song though, resonates so much with me as I have had too many moments in life that mimic the words of this song.

I was walking home from school on a cold winter's day
Took a shortcut through the woods and I lost my way
It was getting 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
But I knew in my heart, he was the answer to my prayers

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 dealt troubled times and had me down on my knees
There's always been someone there 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
Ain't it kind of funny at the dark end of the road
Someone lights the way with just a single ray of hope

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

They wear so many faces
Show up in the strangest places
Grace us with their mercy
In our time of need

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



Here is a video that I found which I think is beautiful and really depicts the song. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

  1. what a beautiful song, and I certainly do believe, and love Angels, there are many kinds you know and some even choose to be in human form in a life, those are the kind people...whom we have thought " you are like an angel".but, let us not forget they are also serving the purpose they are supposed to be, as we all are..If you love Angels and would like to read more about/of them, and their communications, please read books by "Doreen Virtue".. Not too many spiritually sensitive people speak with Angels, ...blessings...

  2. Yes, I definitely agree with you about Doreen Virtue. I love her books and other things that she puts out. Most definitely worth checking out!
