My Journey to God

Angels of God

I find it hard to imagine
But so comforting to believe:
God in His mercy sends angels,
Our need since the garden of Eve.

With caring far beyond knowing,
Our gratitude often not shown,
Angels are stand-by protectors
For us who are waywardly prone.

We welcome their unseen presence
We know their decisions are wise.
Their guidance will steady our steps
As we stumble toward Paradise.
