1. I was walkin' home from school
   Em7  C 
   on a cold winter day,
   G                Em7         C 
   took a short cut through the woods
   and I lost my way.
   G              D/F#  Em7       C 
   It was gettin' late, and I was scared and alone.
   G               Fm7         C     D
   Then a kind old man took my me home.
   C                 Bm7
   mama couldn't see him,
       C               D7
   but he was standing there,
       C            G/B
   and I knew in my heart
              C            D7
   he was the answer to my prayer.

       G     A Em7             Am7      D7
R: Oh, I be-lieve there are Angels A-mong Us,
   G     A   Em7        C     D
   sent down to us from somewhere up above.
   D7           G     A Em7   C               D7
   They come to you and me in our darkest hours
      C     D        Bm7
   to show us how to live
      C     D         D7
   to teach us how to  give
      C     D         D7       G
   to guide us with a light of love.

2. When life held troubled times
   and had me down on my knees
   there's always been someone
   to come along and comfort me
   a kind word from a stranger
   to lend a helping hand
   a phone call from a friend
   just to say I understand
   Now ain't it kind of funny
   at the dark end of the road
   someone light the way with just a single ray of hope.

R: Oh, I be-lieve...

   C     D      Bm7
*: They wear so many faces,
   C     D        Bm7
   show up in the strangest places
       C     D             Bm7     Am7            D7
   and grace us with their mercies in our time of need.

R: Oh, I be-lieve...
