"Angels Among Us" as written by Don Goodman and Becky Hobbs....
I was walkin'home from school
On a cold winter day,
Took a short cut through the woods
And I lost my way.
It was gettin' 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,
And I knew in my heart
He was the answer to my prayer.

[Chorus]
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 held troubled times
And had me down on my knees
There's always been someone
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
Now ain't it kind of funny
At the dark end of the road
Someone light the way with just a single ray of hope.

[Chorus]

They wear so many faces,
Show up in the strangest places
And grace us with their mercies in our time of need.

[Chorus]

To guide us with a light of love

    General CommentI THINK that what this song is saying is that there are always going to be angels among us in a way, whether u can or cant see them. they might be a real angel they might be your best friend but somehow someway u will know when u find them. and in times of need and hurt when someone comes to comfort u or to tell u it is going to be ok or tryes to help u that that shows they care and understand what u r going through.

    I love the song. During a very tryng time at work, my co-workers offered me comfort and encouraging words, telling me to hang in there and that God is watching over me.
