Angels Among Us

Are you aware that as a person of faith
Angels are right here?
All around, spiritually sound
Any and everywhere
Are you aware that God will bless you
With an agent from His throne?
Angels are among us
And we're never ever alone

Our faith must be relevant
To the life we are now living
Our faith must also connect
To the aura we are giving
To be no earthly good
Because you're too focused on the Promised Land
Not living God's way
Nor on the principles of which He stands

But we can't sit in silence in the face
Of Trump's atrocious acts
Taking innocent babies from their parents
With no means to give them back
And then have the nerve to justify this
With the Holy Scriptures
But we who are children of God 
Know the true picture

Enforcing the laws of man
Or to abide by the laws of God
For God said those who are fleeing oppression
We must take them to heart
And never forget that we ourselves
Came to this land as well
For we were all immigrants
The truth we must tell

So entertain strangers because
You'll never know
If an angel is among them
And that It's watching you show
The true nature of your character
And your Christian care
And if you're ready to do something 
About what's happening here

We all must learn to live together
Or we all will perish as fools
To let go of hate and racism 
For those are not godly tools
And God said when the children cry
He will hear them weep
And His wrath will come down 
And the price will be steep

So heed and abide by what God 
Himself did say
I have angels among you
Each and every day
And to never forget that you yourself
Were strangers and immigrants too
Have compassion for each other
As I have had compassion for you
