  • The angels looked down from heaven one night
    They searched for miles afar,
    And deep within the distance
    They could see a shining star.

    They knew that very instant
    That the star was theirs to gain,
    So they took you up to heaven
    Forever to remain.

    Look down on us from heaven
    Keep us free from hurt and pain,
    You’ll always be within my heart
    Until we meet again.
