Angels Cried

They came from near
They came from far
Following a distant star
To where he lay

Not being sure of what it meant
but knowing it was Heaven sent
they made their way

And the creatures gathered round
And didn't make a sound
And the angels cried

The angels knew what was to come
The reason god had sent his son from up above
It filled their hearts with joy to see
And knowing of his destiny
Came tears of love

And the creatures gathered round
And didn't make a sound
And the angels cried

I've often thought about that night
And wondered if they realize that star so bright
Was sent to tell all the land the son of God would soon become
The son of man

And the creatures gathered round
And didn't make a sound
And the angels cried
And the angels cried
And the angels cried
