Lyrics

(Source: as heard)

Do you hear me calling you?
The voice of a mother and a father and a child?
Would you recognize the truth?
Do Can you feel the love that's falling from my eyes?
Take just a minute,
come and rest you by my side.
Let me tell you your own story,
Let me walk you through your lives.
Only a second,
That's all it takes to realise
There's a hundred thousand angels by your side.
There's a hundred thousand angels by your side.
Do you hear me talk to you?
I whisper through doorways and pathways of your mind.
Clear like the morning dew
And fresh from my journey 'cross an ocean of blue.
Take just a minute.
Come and rest you by my side.
Let me tell you your own story,
Let me walk you through your lives.
Only a second,
That's all it takes to realise
There's a hundred thousand angels by your side.
There's a hundred thousand angels by your side.
There's a hundred thousand angels here tonight.

Originally recorded by Bliss, a new-age/inspirational UK band fronted by Lucinda Drayton. It's the title track on their second album, and the original is completely different from Sinéad's covers--it's quite similar to Sinéad's "Silent Night," in that it features just a voice and ethereal keyboards.
