I'm An Angel Now 

One night I cried to Jesus as I sat beneath the tree. 
I looked into the open sky and hoped he'd answer me. 
I'm lost, Dear Lord, I've traveled far, but still I seem to roam. 
Please light the way and lead me, Lord. I need to get back home. 

I told him of my burdens, and of the sadness in my heart. 
That from His gracious love I'd never felt so far apart. 
Why did you take my child, Lord? I cannot understand! 
No longer can I touch her face or hold her tiny hand. 

I'm angry, Lord; I'm missing her. I'm drowning in my sorrow. 
Please help to heal my yesterday and face each new tomorrow. 
It was then I heard her gentle voice and felt her presence near. 
How I wanted so to hold her as I cried another tear. 

She said, "Mommy, I'm an angel now; my spirit will be free. 
I'm an angel now in Heaven, so please don't cry for me. 
I was chosen by our Lord above, and now I'm in His care. 
When you need me, look inside your heart. I promise to be there. 

No one can every take away our bond with one another. 
I will always be your precious child, as you will be my mother. 
So if you cannot find your way, or the road to home seems far; 
Just look up to the Heavens and I'll be your guiding star." 

She said, "Mommy, I'm an angel now; my spirit will be free. 
I'm an angel now in Heaven - no need to cry for me."
