The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him, and delivers them. Psalm 34:7
Lo, a sound like a gentle flowing breeze,
The melody of a peaceful, flowing stream!
Voiceless voices lifting songs of praise
To the Lamb who sits upon the Throne,
Lifting my soul from its distressing pit,
Overwhelming my fears with boundless love.
Angels surrounding me with armor of praise,
Turning away the fires that rage.
Angels keeping watch over my bed of pain,
Angels dispelling the darkness around me,
Angels shouting “Freedom!” in the midst of my troubles.
Messengers of God commissioned to release,
Ministers of God to serve His elect.
Worshipers of God to give Him praise.
Winds, Flames, to fulfill His Word!
Angels! Shutting the lion’s mouth!
Angels! Flames of God to quench the flames of hell!
Myriads of angels,
Masses from heaven,
Guiding His chosen!
Hallelujah! Thine the glory!
David E. Ross
