Send The Angels

Sittin’ at the table
Knife and fork in hand
Bless this food, bless this day
Bless the leaders of this land
And ask forgiveness for the silent thoughts

Must the sacred lands
be forever red
Send the Angels
Must the children pay
with arms and legs
Send the Angels

Chorus: Ooohh, send the Angels, ooohh, send the Angels

Sittin’ at the table
Knife and fork in hand
Blessing interrupted by the Nightly News
Jews killing Arabs, Arabs killing Jews
Ask forgiveness once again for the silent thoughts

Does He share my tears
For the innocent
Send the Angels
Does He hear my pleas
For His providence
Send the Angels

Chorus:

Bridge: Did I pray enough Did I take too much
Did I give enough Did I sin too much?

Sittin’ at the table
Knife and fork in hand
Bless this food, bless this day
Bless the leaders of this land, and
With bleeding reverence, ask once again

Send the Angels, send the Angels, send the Angels . . .
