She was so small, so very shy one may not have noticed her at first
As She watched with quiet joy the tumult of excitement.
She had no assignment on this particular day.
She was not skilled in preparing for a great birth
Her gift from the Heavenly Father was a tender heart,
And the ability to express those emotions in song.
So she was content to merely observe and patiently wait.
Amid the angelic rush and flurry the Master had not forgotten.
He crossed the golden street and gently touched her shoulder.
"I have something special for you to do tonight. Where is your harp?"
"It is here, Master," she replied, "Shall I play you something now?"

"Now!" He said.
From the splendor of Heaven, thru the clear starry night, to the manger of Bethlehem
Came the sweetest notes of pure praise drawn from the very soul of that little angel.
With a heart full of holy reverence she told the story in melody.
As the last note drifted into time everlasting, the Master smiled upon her.
"Never before has Heaven or Earth heard such beauty. Well done."
The Little angel bowed low at her Master's feet.
