I was walking home from school on a cold winter day
Took a shortcut through the woods and I lost my way
It was getting late and I was scared and alone
But then a kind old man took my hand and led me home
Mama couldn't see him but he was standing there
And I knew in my heart, he was the answer to my prayers

Oh, I believe there are angels among us
Sent down to us from somewhere up above
They come to you and me in our darkest hours
To show us how to live, to teach us how to give
To guide us with the light of love

When life held troubled times and had me down on my knees
There's always been someone there to come along and comfort me
A kind word from a stranger, to lend a helping hand
A phone call from a friend, just to say I understand

And ain't it kind of funny that at the dark end of the road
Someone lights the way with just a single ray of hope

Oh, I believe there are angels among us
Sent down to us from somewhere up above
They come to you and me in our darkest hours
To show us how to live, to teach us how to give
To guide us with the light of love

They wear so many faces, show up in the strangest places
To grace us with their mercy, in our time of need

Oh, I believe there are angels among us
Sent down to us from somewhere up above
They come to you and me in our darkest hours
To show us how to live, to teach us how to give
To guide us with the light of love

To guide us with the light of love

    I think that the meaning the meaning to "i believe there are angels among us" is that no matter where you are, there is always going to be someone who will make you laugh, or if you're on the street, someone to help you out, or even if you're a bystander to something going on, they'll remind you that you've got to live your life and have some fun, instead of being depressed or serious all the time. I think there is always going to be someone or something going on that'll remind you to live life, laugh often, and love much. :d :d :d

    I lost my beloved Lab on Monday. I was devastated and unable to be comforted despite my strong religious faith. On Tuesday, I sat at a mall food court when about 50 elementary school children filed silently into the cafeteria and were seated all around us. Thinking they were on a field trip to see the mall Santa, tears poured from my eyes and heart when they started singing and also signing "I believe there are angels among us they come to us in our deepest sorrow. They wear so many faces, show up in the strangest places. To guide us with the light of love." Then, they filed back out to their buses and I was left with the understanding that my angel dog is still living and that a loving God knew just the comfort I would need. I've never thought that this was a Christmas song, but for SOME reason, these "angels" chose this message and I know it was for me.
