The Prayer

 Though God has granted you his wings 

To lift you up on heaven’s breeze

 Come down, my angel, down to me.

And yes, this world, it sways and swings 

But trust your feet and trust your knees 

And come down, my angel, down to me.

And yes, the sun, it often stings

Upon the fairest skin, but please 

Though God has granted you his wings 

Come down, my angel, down to me.

And yes, you’ll live among the kings 

But do not leave me ground and seas 

Though God has granted you his wings.

And though, the sky above, it sings

I cannot bear their melodies

So come down, my angel, down to me.

A selfish prayer I do bring

But never will I live at ease

Though God has granted you his wings 

Come down, my angel, down to me.
