I WENT TO HELL AND BACK THAT NIGHT…
BUT I WAS NOT ALONE!

SO SICK, SO FULL OF NEEDLESS FRIGHT…

IN HELL…SO MUCH KINDNESS SHOWN!

 

FOR THERE WERE THOSE THAT STAYED CLOSE BY

THOSE THAT SHOWED THEY CARED…

THEY BATHED MY HEAD, THEY HEARD ME CRY,

THEY KNEW THAT I WAS SCARED.

 

NIGHT NURSE, DAY NURSE, THEY GOT ME THROUGH.

THEY HELPED ME UNDERSTAND

THAT SICK AS I MIGHT BE, ‘TIS TRUE

THEY WERE THERE TO HOLD MY HAND.

 

YES, I WENT TO HELL AND BACK, I KNOW…

SO AFRAID OF WHAT MIGHT BE.

AND YET THOSE GENTLE HEARTS DID SHOW

COMPASSION, CARING – SENSITIVITY!

 

I HEARD THE WHISPER OF ANGEL WINGS,

I SWEAR I HEARD THE SOUND!

I FELT THE COMFORT AN ANGEL BRINGS

WHEN DESPAIR AND PAIN ABOUND.

EARTHBOUND ANGELS GUIDED ME

AND I WANT TO THANK EACH ONE…

FOR BEING THERE FOR ALL TO SEE

HOW GOD’S WORK ON EARTH IS DONE!
