Gentle as a flow’r is
Ev’ry waking hour is
Warmed by your embrace.
When my days were gloomy
Heaven sent you to me
With your gentle grace.
I heard the night wind calling
And like the wild bird
I go my way.
One day as rain was falling
A smile as bright as the sun
Replaced that blue day
With a new day!
If I hadn’t found you
Put my arms around you,
I would have no place.
I will never stary from
Stay a kiss away from
Your angelic face! 
ANGEL theme from Those Calloways Walt Disney Music Co., 1964. Lyrics by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans, music by Max Steiner. (Vocal Score)
