Note from Unity in the Truth: This song was written by my wife Cherrie back in 1993 after being a Christian for about a year and over a year before we met. A good friend of ours that worked with Cherrie in writing songs early in her Christian walk sent this to me. I don’t think too much about coincidences. Sometimes the timing of things is of the Lord and other times it might just be the timing of things, but I have to say I think it was at least very fitting that I received it in the mail on June 16th. Upon opening the envelope, I noticed that Cherrie’s song was dated June 16th… 1993.  

As is always the case with the Lord, the timing couldn’t have been more perfect.  It was most definitely encouraging, especially in light of some challenging events this summer. God is so gracious! In Exodus, the Lord reminded Moses and reminds us, “The LORD God, [is] merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth…” Exodus 34:6.  

I pray Cherrie’s poem, “The Angel’s Choir” blesses you as much as it did me.

 

THE ANGEL’S CHOIRGod's love to people

My friend, I’ve just been thinking,

It’s so fortunate we met.

I know you’ve also realized,

This meeting was no accident.

 

But now I’d like to emphasize,

If possible, somehow describe,

My desire,

but God will require,

That we walk together until it’s time,

For one of us to arise to God on high,

And leave earthly gifts to live with Him in paradise.

 

And I promise if I’m called first,

I’ll be sure to reserve,

A seat next to mine in the angel’s choir.

 

In all our conversations,

God’s been there to teach and bless,

Through you God has empathized,

With the emotions I’ve expressed.

So I’m asking for a surprise.

 

I’m seeking God’s perpetual fire,

To inspire,

An equal light,

Until I am called to sing on high.

You see friend, I am so grateful,

For the gift of your eyes.

 

You just let me be and pray instead of criticize.

So I’m asking God to keep matching our strides,

Until it’s time for the other soul to fly.
