Acappella - One Ragged Angel lyrics

He was standin' on the corner with a will-work-for-food sign
He said brother can you spare me a thin dime
I promise I'll make it worth all of your time (your time)
I thought man he was drunk outta his mind
My coin hit his cup and as I turned to go (and as I turned)
He told me things about my life that no one could know (he could not know, he's been hearin')
Said I got the message from the Man upstairs
He's been hearing your prayers

Chorus:
Nah nah nah nah nah
It doesn't matter where the answer's from
Long as you're listening when it comes (when it comes, when it comes your way)
'Cause in an instant years of doubt will roll away (years of doubt they'll roll away)
By one ragged angel one dime (one dime) one day

Come On
nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah (x2)

Even now tellin' you it makes no sense
I turned around and I don't know where he went
But from that day I have never had one doubt (I have never had a doubt)
The toughest times are all gonna work out

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
It might be a song on the radio
A line from your favorite TV show
A friend's advice or a stranger's voice
When you're meant to hear it you'll have no choice (no choice, no choice)

Come on

Repeat Chorus

Come on
Nah nah nah nah nah
In a minute, in an instant
He could change your life
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Sing the song, sing a song

Scriptural Reference:

"Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.' They also will answer, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?' He will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.'" Matthew 25:41-45
