The Story Behind Angel Song

I first released "Angel Song" as a piano solo on my third album titled "Angel Song." I am reprinting the beautiful story behind the song here for those who don't know it's origins. Also, this version of Angel Song on Mercy River Melodies features strings and guitar and has an entirely different sound than the previous version.

I love to experiment with this song and after you read about its origins you may understand why.

For those of you who heard the original "Angel Song", I hope you will enjoy the way the music sounds when played with guitar and strings on my Mercy River Album.

Angel Song

Some time after our children went off to college, the Lord began to give me prayer songs.

One day I fell asleep after walking our dog and dreamed I went to Heaven.

Before me rose a great golden throne that reached very high into the bluest sky I’d ever seen.

Upon it sat the Lord Jesus Christ. He looked as if He were clothed with robes made of gleaming stars.

Saints and angels were dancing in two rings around the Lord’s throne.

The dancers were moving in opposite directions like two rivers flowing around His throne.

They were keeping perfect time in a harmonious rhythm to a beautiful song playing in the background.

A clear, sparkling river flowed all around the throne and on down into a beautiful valley.

Somehow I knew the river was called the Mercy River.

Suddenly, the Lord Jesus got up off of His throne. He looked very much bigger than anyone else.

He gently gathered some of the souls into His strong arms.

He gazed at them with eyes so filled with love I can’t even begin to describe it.

He said softly, “I love you, I love you so much.”

And then I woke up with the beautiful music of heaven echoing in my ears.

Something whispered in my heart that I could play that song on my piano.

I sat down and somehow played the melody.

Though I have played the song many times since the day of my dream, it never sounds as lovely as it did in Heaven,

but nothing one creates ever comes out as beautiful as the dream from which it was born.

Later I wrote some words to go with the music. The refrain is what the angels and saints were singing in my dream:

“Worthy, worthy is the Lamb.”

I called it “The Angel Song.” The piano solo is track 8 on this album.

I give the Lord Jesus Christ all the credit for my inspiration. I can do nothing apart from Him. 

May the Angel Song echo the reality of Heaven and Christ's Love to all who hear it.

All praise to Jesus!

He’s our King!

Worthy is the Lamb!

To Him we dance and clap and sing!

Worthy is the Lamb!

Worthy, worthy, worthy is the Lamb.

 

Angels bow before His throne;

Worthy is the Lamb!

Holy is the Lamb of God!

Worthy is the Lamb!

Worthy, worthy, worthy is the Lamb!

 

He was slain for all our sin!

Worthy is the Lamb.

Worship and Bow down to Him!

Worthy is the Lamb!

Worthy, worthy, worthy is the Lamb!

 

Holy God, Creator King,

Worthy is the Lamb!

To our Maker, Lord we sing!

Worthy is the Lamb!

                                                                                          Worthy, Worthy, Worthy is the Lamb!  

 

Holy hands to Christ we raise!

Worthy is the Lamb!

Lift Him high with all your praise!

Worthy is the Lamb!

Worthy, worthy, worthy is the Lamb!

 

We will praise you, King of Kings,

We will praise you Lord!

Creator God of everything,

We will praise you Lord!

Lift Him High,

Oh clap and sing,

We will praise you Lord!

Heaven dances merrily,

While we praise you Lord!

Worthy, Worthy, Worthy is the Lamb!

 

Angels dance around your throne

We will praise you Lord!

What a party while we sing

To Jesus, our Almighty King!

The Father laughs; all heaven shakes,

The angels dance; the thunder quakes!

We will praise Our Lord!

Worthy, worthy, worthy is the Lamb!

Worthy, worthy, worthy is the Lamb!
