An Angel Came Calling

From the depths of Heaven
An Angel came calling
A voice they thought they’d heard
On weakened knees and falling

Someone crying out for help
An answer to mankind’s prayers
A social dilemma
For everyone to care

How do we change
And fix our mistakes
We need another chance
Please don’t say it’s too late

Yes, we’ve made some bad choices
By letting greed fill our hearts
But with love and compassion
We’ll make a new start

Enough of the killing
The riots and looting
Enough of the hatred
Racism and shooting

Let us rebuild
The bridges that we burned
We’ll pull together hand and hand
The Human Race has learned

If we are to survive
The growing pains of evolution
We must spread world love
A universal solution
