Sounds like a book title or a new fragrance at the cosmetic counter.
However, Pope Benedict XVI takes the concept quite literally, as if everyone has heard such song or at least heard of it.
I recently read about
The biblical account clearly says they spoke those words, Benedict argues. But it is what he says next that grabs me by the earlobe.
“But Christianity has always understood that the speech of angels is actually song,
in which all the glory of the great joy that they proclaim becomes tangibly present.”
That comment struck a familiar chord with me, for as a musician who has long played on church worship teams, I have always believed that music is a language—the language of the heart.
The pope might agree.
Imagine – hearing angels sing, or better yet, singing with them.
I cannot prove the recording and testimony are true, but neither can I disprove them. What I can do is continue to lift my own voice in song to the maker of heaven and earth, the lover of my soul, the king of my life—and hope that the angels are listening and joining in my praise.
