An Angel Returned
Christmas Eve and Other Stories (1996)
Hoping that we’ll all understand
Every dream is there in our hands
And for every bell
May they ring all through your life
The final track in the story that is Christmas Eve and Other Stories is a complementary piece book ending the album that began with An Angel Came Down.
The song steps through the stories and describes the things that the angel has brought back. The glow of a light, the heart of a song, the tear of a child, the wish of a soul… all things that we can’t just capture and hold on to. But we aren’t angels. And the angel brings them and presents them to God.
The story ends and bells ring in the new day, Christmas Day. And quite literally the angel learns, and we learn through him that every dream we want is within our hands, as he holds our dream and wishes in his hands.
