The Angels Cried lyrics

duet with Alison Krauss
written by Harley Allen and Deborah Nims

They came from near,they came from far
Following a distance star to where He lay
Not being sure of what it mean,but
Knowing it was their way

And the creatures gathered 'round
And didn't make a sound
And the angels cried

The angels knew what was to come
The reason God had sent His son
From up above
It filled their hearts with joy to see and
Knowing of His destiny
Came tears of love

I've often thought about that night
And wondered if they realized
That star so bright
Was sent to tell all the land
The Son of God would soon become
The Son of Man

Chorus

And the Angel Cried
And the Angel Cried
