Where Angels Soar

Look up to the Heavens where the Angels doth soar, To the cascading thunder and deafening roar; To the loftiest crags of every mountain high. Hovering far above in cerulean skies, In our darkest hours, always hearing our cries. Man but a speck in the infinite sands of time. Alpha and Omega, finite, infinite sign, God's most wondrous grace on Earth, His Glory Divine; Only thru his deeds shall man to Heaven attain. His cherubs proclaiming, this Heavenly refrain, Winged Watches warmly wrapping our Earthly domain; The Earth's one supreme test of man's ultimate faith. Tween' the blessed, the pure, the vile and the chaste, Man accedes to Heaven with only His embrace; Reverence and kindness ne'er guarantee our fate. Entrance denied or approved at St. Peter's Gate. Look upward to the Heavens - the Angels won't wait; Final decisions lay in the Grace of our Lord. To the loftiest crags of every mountain high, Man but a speck in the infinite sands of time; Only thru his deeds shall man to Heaven attain; The Earth's one supreme test of man's ultimate faith. Reverence and kindness ne'er guarantee our fate; Final decisions lay in the Grace of our Lord.
