Send down an angel from up above,
I need the cooing of a dove,
I'm hurting and I need God's love,
I know it will fit me like a glove.
Send down an angel I am in need,
Please do come and plant a seed,
Help me get control of my greed,
I need your love, yes indeed.
Send down an angel, help my plight,
I am so afraid I will take flight,
I know what I'm doing isn't right,
I have to ask for your sweet light.
Send down an angel, I'm in a depression,
Help me, with my life's expression,
I feel so much dislike and aggression,
Please Lord, I beg listen to my confession.
Send down an angel, help me initiate,
I want my life to you to dedicate,
Take me please Lord and deliberate,
On your love I want to concentrate.
Send down an angel, even in disguise,
I have led a life that is most unwise,
I seek your help, this to revise,
I know that Jesus was the prize.
Send down an angel, I need a chance,
To help with my soul to advance,
I don't need tricks, magic or a play,
I know for all things I must pay.
Send down an angel from up yonder,
I need more help my life to ponder,
I want to get, Lord with you much fonder,
I know that in my life you will work a wonder.
Send down an angel my sweet Lord,
I want to learn more of your word,
I want to leave the maddening horde,
Please, welcome me aboard.
Send down an angel, I have expressed,
With your life's book I am impressed,
All my life I have really messed,
Please Lord; help me make my life blessed.
Send down an angel right away,
Although I was alright yesterday,
I go to church every Sunday,
But I really need your help I pray.
Send down an angel that I can keep,
My troubles they do run deep,
I am so sad that I can weep,
Oh Lord; help me your love to reap.
Send down an angel to take the helm,
I need to stand as strong as an elm,
The troubles of life they overwhelm,
I want to leave and dwell in your realm.
Send down an angel from above,
My life it feels like a glove,
I hear the cooing of a dove,
Thank you Lord, I've received your love.
