Angel came down from heaven yesterday
She stayed with me just long enough to rescue me
And she told me a story yesterday
About the sweet love between the moon and the deep blue sea
And then she spread her wings high over me
And said "I'm goin' to come back tomorrow"
And I said "Fly on my sweet angel"
"Fly on to the sky"
"Fly on my sweet angel"
"Tomorrow I'll be there by your side"
Sure enough this morning came unto me
A silver wing silhouette against a child sunrise
And my angel, she said unto me
"Boy today is the day for you to rise"
"Take my hand, you're gonna be my man, and you're gonna rise"
And she took me high over yonder
