When times are tough, a kind word, hug and a prayer are much appreciated shows of support for those facing adversity. One particular song penned in 1993 for the legendary country music band Alabama ended up prompting hundreds of people from around the world to send letters to the band members thanking them for recording this song, stating that it was a blessing to them during their own personal difficulties.
In fact, the song was performed by band member Randy Owen at the funeral of famous race car driver and his good buddy Dale Earnhardt, Sr. This beloved song entitled “Angels Among Us” was released on Alabama’s Cheap Seats album as a Christmas single.
The award-winning song features touching lyrics like “Oh, I believe there are angels among us, sent down to us from somewhere up above.” The song highlights troubled times weighting someone down, and that there had 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.'”
