Today An Angel Took His Place In Heaven

Feather

Today an Angel took his place in heaven
A man who was an Angel on this Earth
But if he took his place in heaven
Tell me why it feels a light went out on Earth?

My heart cries out to him ‘I miss you,
‘My life is empty where you were.
How can I go on without you?
Help me know what purpose does it serve?’  

CHORUS
I know that Angels all surround you
I know that you’re in Heaven’s bliss
I know that you’re with your Beloved
Your souls are one in Heaven’s Kiss

Somehow I must go on without you
My heart in loss, in sadness and in pain
How can we ever heal this darkness?
Show me how I feel the light again.

Then I remember all that you did for us
I remember all the love you gave
I remember that you were an Angel
Who walked this Earth in this life that we made

And I know that we were blessed to have you
I feel your love now deep within my heart
And as I feel your love once more around me
I know we never were apart

CHORUS
And I know the Angels are around you
I know that you’re in Heaven’s bliss
I know that you’re with Your Beloved
Your souls are one in Heaven’s kiss

As I go on I feel you ever with me
My heart made strong and braver by your love
I give thanks for all the things you taught me
For your life, your heart and for your love

I know my soul will once again know laughter
The darkness slowly turning bright
And I know you’ll be forever with me
And my heart will once again be light.

CHORUS
I’ll sing with joy, with Angels all around us
I know that we are all in Heaven’s bliss
I know that we are one with the Beloved
That all our souls are one in Heaven’s kiss
