These Wings

Sometimes I just wish to be an angel

To be one of His servants

I would be able to help people

I wouldn't be helpless like now

He would send me from Heaven to earth

And there I would praise His word

The people would listen to me

Because they would know

That it's true what I'd say

Because they would see my wings

These wings tell everyone I'm from Heaven

These wings show that I'm His

These wings help me to fly

These wings help me to help

If only I would have them

I could help in His name

But people don't need wings to fly

They have machines created for this

But to work in His name they are not made

They can fly over lands and boarders

But they cannot lead them home

When they fly they can fall

But when an angel guides them

They can feel His love so near

They say "Oh, my lord, I feel Thee!"

They know that they are loved

These wings tell everyone I'm from Heaven

These wings show that I'm His

These wings help me to fly

These wings help me to help

If only I would have them

I could help in His name

I'm not an angel – everyone can see

I do not have wings to fly

And I cannot guide people home

I cannot save everyone's soul – not even my own

And I cannot make you whole

But I can sing this song for you

And I can tell you the story of a man

Whose father lives in Heaven and calls us His own

He's everyone's father – I know for sure

And he doesn't need wings to fly
