A lonely child by the window sat,
And watched the rain fall down.
Rivulets formed on the glassy panes.
The drops a diamond crown.
A mother tried to soothe her child,
And told a story from long ago
About an angel lost in heaven
Who had no where to go.
Hid amongst the clouds so high
She feared the face of God
But He knew and He is kind
He cleared her celestial fog
“Fear not child, my love is true”
Came a gentle voice
”I’ll always be beside you
If that would be your choice.”
The frightened angel dried her tears,
And took the outstretched hand.
“Forgive me please my dearest Lord,
I did not understand.”
But still sometimes the tears do fall.
It’s a difficult path to keep.
Fear and sorrow overcome,
And then the angels weep.
So next you see a peaceful rain
Remember well this tale
Never fear the face of God
He will not let you fail
