Whispering Angel - abridged
Whispering Angel: Strength of the Babes
Blubbering baby, newborn to this Earth
Tell me why you wail and blubber at birth?
Could you be afraid of this Earthly Circus?
Well, don’t be afraid and don’t be nervous.
I shall hold your hand, so don’t be anxious.
We are all on Earth for a higher purpose.
Even if we feel that the world is against us
Even if we face a most daunting concourse
Even if we think that the task is enormous,
...perhaps all these things are sent, and meant, to test us.
Let us hum a tune, to the angels, in chorus.
Look up to the skies; to the Heavens above us.
I shall be your guide - just keep calm, and focus.
Hold on to this faith, and you shall be joyous.
Even if you feel that some men are monstrous
Even if you face that foe - mischievous
Even if you think that it's all mysterious,
…be cautious to be curious at a world that is so curious.
Sometimes you may fail, and sometimes victorious.
Journeys that you make may at times be dangerous.
I am by your side in all storms tempestuous.
Never give up hope; just stride on courageous.
Even if it seems that the paths are perilous
Even if you face a road most treacherous,
Even if you think the ways of men outrageous,
...take care to be precocious, for the gift of life is precious.
I shall let you in on a secret about Jesus,
How to seem poor and yet be prosperous.
Don’t ever hold back in being too generous.
Forgive all bad friends, and even bad neighbours.
Even though betrayed by that man, called Judas
Even though they swapped Him for that thief, Barabbas
Even though they nailed Him to that Cross, still conscious,
...men still remain oblivious ...though the Truth is quite obvious.
Blubbering baby ...sleep on then in peace.
I shall watch over you - I shall your Journey ease.
