And the Angels Danced – LYRICS FOR THE SOUL
As in the lyrics of the finest ballads and spirituals, nothing can lift one to a higher level than poetic verse that comes from the inner life of the writer. Even if you have never been drawn to poetry you owe it to yourself to at least sample this pure spiritual stream of verse. You will actually be able to feel the spirit and receive a lift for your soul.

There is a Garden (Changed from “The Garden Within”)
Oh what a lovely place. I enter in and close the door
to all that disturbs the power of its healing virtue.
The firm cool stone that winds its way and forms the path
for my feet to walk beckon me to press forward through the winds of life.
Lilies speak to me and remind me to relax, to chill, to let
life do its work for I am a beautiful creation; I am created like my God.
Ferns tell me to continue to drink in all that life offers me as the
butterflies remind me of the delicate and tender spirit that lies within
the heart of all mankind and I must strive to reach that part of the soul.
Birds sing to me in a melodious harmony that causes all
confusion to cease existing.
Roses force me to attain to the glory that is my heritage and
the authenticity that is my true identity.
After my walk through the garden I sit on the iron lounge lined with
cushions and surrounded by the bird bath and angel statues.
I feel secure in the strength that holds me up yet lets me sink
in total trust of the mass that allows me rest.
In a twinkling of an eye I am awakened to the garden of my soul.
