10. Angels Wish

All Things New
by Steven Curtis Chapman



 

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

Well, I can't fly at least not yet
I've got no halo on my head
And I can't even start to picture Heaven's beauty
But I've been shown the Savior's 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
I've felt loneliness and shame
And I have watched the blinding light of grace
Come breaking through with a sweetness only tasted
By the forgiven and redeemed

And someday I'll sit down with my angel friends
Up in heaven
And they'll tell me about Creation
And I'll tell them a story of Grace

Well, I can't fly at least not yet
I've got no halo on my head
And I can't even start to picture Heaven's beauty
But I've been shown a Savior's 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

Behind the Song:
'This was the last song I wrote for this record. I've had a little idea floating in my head for a long time. I have always been intrigued by the verse in the Bible that talks about how we know things that angels long to look into, that we have access to knowledge or experience that angels don't have access to, even though they have access that we don't as heavenly beings. So finally, I sat down in a moment of inspiration at the piano and wrote this song. I'm really glad I did - it's one of the most unique songs on the record. It will be a fun song to perform live, just one of those moments where I can sit at the piano and take it to a different place.' - Steven Curtis Chapman
