An Angel Weeps

AN ANGEL WEEPS

H. W. Bryce

Oh cry for the angel,
Cry for the angel who weeps
Each time a conscience sleeps.
Oh cry now for the angel

For every angry word, an angel weeps,
For every double cross, an angel weeps,
Every time you lie, and angel’s tear drops,
And for every cruel act, an angel’s heart stops.

Each time a punch is thrown, an angel weeps,
Each time a grudge is on the creeps,
An angel’s heart, sinks into the deeps
And her hopes drop onto the heaps.

Oh hear the sobs as an angel weeps,
Let not her heartbreak be for keeps,
Have compassion for her heart,
Let us do our better part.

Oh cry for the angel,
Cry for the angel who weeps
Each time a conscience sleeps.
Oh cry now for the angel.

An angel weeps

For every broken heart, an angel weeps,
For every broken child, an angel weeps,
Every sin makes disappointment grow,
And her halo loses a bit of glow.

Listen closely now,
An angel speaks.
Listen closely and you will hear
How an angel speaks.
Between her sobs
With a voice that bobs,
And an angel speaks.
Listen closely now
And you will hear how an angel peaks…

We must do better now, we must relearn the art of love.
Love is all encompassing, love is more than a free white dove.
We must not make the angels cry, they do watch over us,
And each of us has an angel’s soul, it’s god’s great gift to us.

But for every person with disease,
And every family suffering with,
For every refugee still on the road
And for every victim everywhere,
An angel weeps.

Sitting at the left of God, an angel weeps.
She sees how people fail their God.
She sees the jealousy, the seven sins…
At God’s left side, an angel weeps.

Oh cry for the angel,
Cry for the angel who weeps
Each time a conscience sleeps.
Oh, cry now for the angel
