Angels Wish
by Steven Curtis Chapman
(from I Pet. 1:12)

Was God smiling when he spoke the words that made the world?
And did he cry about the flood?
What does Godís voice sound like
When he sings?   When heís angry?
These are just a few things that the angels have on me

Well I canít fly, at least not yet
Iíve got no halo on my head
And I canít even start to picture heavenís beauty
But Iíve been shown the Saviorís love
The grace of God has raised me up
To show me things the angels long to look into
And I know things the angels only wish they knew

I have seen the dark and desperate place where sin will take you
Iíve felt loneliness and shame
And I have watched the blinding light of grace come breaking through
With sweetness only tasted by the forgiven and redeemed

Still I canít fly, at least not yet
Iíve got no halo on my head
I canít even start to picture heavenís beauty
But Iíve been shown the Saviorís love
The grace of God has raised me up
To show me things the angels long to look into
And I know things the angels only wish they knew

And someday Iíll sit down with my angel friends up in heaven
Theyíll tell me about creation
And Iíll tell them a story of grace

Well I canít fly, at least not yet
Iíve got no halo on my head
And I canít even start to picture heavenís beauty
But Iíve been shown the Saviorís love
The grace of God has raised me up
To show me things the angels long to look into
And I know things the angels only wish they knew.
