tip from an angel lyrics – apologetix

sorry that i’m comin’ here so late
i’m tryin’ to watch my flock right now
i heard a baby cryin’ — is that him in the hay?
i’ll try to whisper but my lambs bleat so loud
well, my herd’s in the next room
most times i’m with sheep, what’s new?
i guess we never really move alone
it’s really good to be here, lord
seeing your face — it sounds so weird
but i got a tip from an angel
he knew those words would take me here
and i never thought i’d be surprised
but, lord, you made a trough be your cradle
in the midst of a stable
there’s not a bunch in common between you and i
and yet you shepherd sheep, too
you gotta know your flock or soon they wander out of sight
no, i don’t think sheep have a clue
well, my herd’s in the next room
sometimes i wish sheep were mute
i guess we’d better get a move on
it’s really good to be here lord
glad that i came — it sounds so weird
but i got a tip from an angel
he knew those words would take me here
and i never thought i’d see the christ
but lord, you came — it’s not some big fable
in the midst of a stable
it’s really good to be here, lord
glad that i came — it sounds so weird
but i got a tip from an angel
he knew those words would take me here
and i never thought i’d be surprised
but lord you made a trough be your cradle
in the midst of a stable
and i never thought i’d see, you, christ
but lord, you came — it’s not some big fable
in the midst of a stable
sorry that i’m comin’ here so late

luke 2:10
but the angel said to them, “do not be afraid. i bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.
