Angels soaring through the air
As they did in Bethlehem
Angels answer every prayer
Once they get around to them

Please...
Be patient
An angel will be with thee shortly

Due to increased prayer amounts
Seraphin will have delays
Servicing thy prayer accounts
For the next five million days

Please...
Be patient
An angel will be with thee shortly

[Hold music]

Please continue thee, to hold
All thy ills shall be relieved
Every human grieve consoled
In the order 'twas received

Please...
Be patient
An authorized prayer technician will be with thee shortly,
Please...
Be patient
Or to save thee time,
Wait for the chime.

    General CommentAnother funny song from Stephen Colbert's Christmas Special.

    The way Feist sings, she sounds like an angel herself.
