The Story Behind Angel Song  

And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions…” ~ Joel 2:28

 

 

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.

 

“Bless the Lord, O my soul. O Lord my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty. Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain…” ~ Psalm 1041:1-2 

 

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. In my dream it was called the Mercy River.

 

“And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.” ~ Revelation 22:1 

Suddenly, the Lord Jesus got up off of His throne. In my dream 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.”   

 (“...for God is love.” ~1 John 4:8)

 

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 by the grace of Almighty God 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  my dream of 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.” 

 

“And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;

12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.” Revelation 5:11-12

 

 

I called the composition “The Angel Song.” The piano solo is track 8 on my album.”  I praise my Lord Jesus Christ for inspiring this music and for teaching me how to play it. As John 14:4 says, I can do nothing apart from Christ. 

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...
