No Obvious Angels

Music by Ron Klusmeier
Words by Shirley Erena Murray
Tune Name: KINZELL

Lyrics as Poetry

No obvious angels sing through the night skies,
no thunderstruck shepherds tell out their surprise,for Christmas comes into the here and the now
through star-sighted people,
the watchful and hopeful,
who wake us to see a new world.Our angel potential is waiting to start!
The Spirit will teach us the song of the heart,for Christmas comes into the here and the now
through peace-maker people,
the just and the gentle,
the stars who will light the new world.Whoever will take it is given the role:
the fruitful, the faithful, the joyous of soul,for Christmas comes into the here and the now
when we are the angels
who dream and deliver,
who rise and create this new world!
