Theres an angel up above
There's a beautiful angel up above,
Looking down on you
And when your feeling sad
And feeling all alone
She will be there beside you ,
Standing by your side
A message will fall from above
And land down by your feet
Her wings that fly her to you ,
a feather it will drop ,
It's the feather of hope
That you are waiting for
She knows that you are grieving
And it will take time ,
your life down here on this earth ,
It's time that you must have,
You are still both together
Look out for the signs,
Her wings will wrap around you ,
and give you so much love,
And your feel her tender touch ,
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Almighty God: who, in the person of the son Jesus, healed the man 'sick of the palsy,' look with favour on thy servants afflicted with Parkinsonism and grant them tranquillity and relief from their sufferings.
Lord Jesus, bless the carers, both family and professional, that their stock of understanding, patience, affection and tender loving care may be constantly replenished and enlarged.
May the Holy Spirit guide the hands and minds of researchers in their quest for the cause and cure of Parkinson's Disease, and may the Parkinson Disease Society be continually inspired with the unity of purpose in carrying out its mission to those who suffer.
