Grateful Angels Sing at Heaven's Gates

Music: Santa Maria Amar.
Cantigas de Santa Maria.
Sequenced by Curtis Clark at The Internet Renaissance Band

Grateful angels sing at Heaven's gates
In choirs, well, perhaps five trillion strong,
Unleashing love insatiable in song,
Love unknown to those of other fates.
In us, so far removed from such high states,
Alien even to where we belong,
Neither here nor there for very long,
A love like that retreats, and doubts, and waits.
