“The angels are so enamored of the language that is spoken in heaven that they will not distort their lips with the hissing and unmusical dialects of men, but speak their own, whether their be any who understand it or not.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

“All God’s angels come to us disguised.” ~ James Russell Lowell

“The guardian angels of life fly so high as to beyond our sight, but they are always looking down upon us” ~ Jean Paul Richter

“Angels descending, bring from above, echoes of mercy, whispers of love.” ~ Fanny J. Crosby

“If trouble hearing angels’ song with thine ears, try listening with thy heart.” ~ Terri Guillemets

oh my angel! with thy voice ethereal sweet,
i beseech you, dare entreat,
this lowly man, firmly held to ground,
permit my ears to hear thy sound,

watching from a distance amongst the clouds,
far from reach from these mortal crowds,
like a stargazer, staring into the skies,
hoping beyond hope for a glimpse of thine eyes,

and while sight and sound denies thee here,
thy presence is palpable, intimately near,
burning embers catching fire is thy love,
consummated in pureness and truth from above,

yet still chained to earth, my soul bellows loud,
“descend from thy cloud, thy celestial shroud!”
if only for a moment, show thyself to me,
and gift with angel’s tongue words of love eternally.
