Tears from Heaven


O God hear an angels' prayer
If only man would learn to love
Forgive the sight of blinded men
The angels' prayer from far above

Banished from the eyes of God
The tears fall on the clouds again
The angels' prayer from far above
Forgive the sight of blinded men

The teardrops fall upon a cloud
O God hear this prayer thereof
Forgive the sight of blinded men
The angels' prayer from far above

Weep until our prayer is answered
God please hear this prayer; amen
The angels' prayer from far above
Forgive the sight of blinded men

Amongst the flowers I

drinking by myself; then lifting
