December Squid Angel: Have You Been Touched by an Angel?

Updated on December 18, 2010

Dedicating to Angels: About My Angel Lens

Since being the first to deliver the Christmas message, Angels have always had a special place in our hearts. Known as messengers of God, guardians, and beautiful heavenly creatures, they represent purity and holiness in contrast to fallen man. Whether it's little angels, or cherubim's, or the great archangels Michael and Gabriel, they each represent virtues and ideals that we find so important, especially around the holidays.

I was blessed to be made a Christmas Squid Angel for December 2010, and I am truly honored to be named after one of these ethereal beings. What better way to celebrate Christmas than by blessing other people with the gift of lens love. While most Squid Angels concentrate on making a Lensography dedicated to the lenses they have loved during their tenure, I wished to instead make a lasting memorial to the Angels and their lore. While I do include some other Squid Angel aspects (post your lens to get loved), this lens is dedicated to the history of angels, music, images, and other blessings for you to enjoy.

Christmas Angels, the Heralds of the Holidays.

Christmas Angels are perhaps the most remembered angels, because of their great prominance within the Christmas Story. From Gabrial speaking to Mary about her child, to the Angels proclamation to the shepherds of the Savior's birth, their undeniable presence was of great importance to the nativity story. For more information on the history of Christmas Angels, check out My Favorite Christmas Angels Website, which gives a great in depth history of the Angels of Christmas. Continue below for beautiful Christmas Angel pictures, songs, and more on Angels.

Angels We Have Heard On High - Amazing Christmas Carol Performance

Angels We Have Heard On High Lyrics

Angels we have heard on high

Sweetly singing o'er the plains,

And the mountains in reply

Echoing their joyous strains.


Gloria, in excelsis Deo!

Gloria, in excelsis Deo!

Shepherds, why this jubilee?

Why your joyous strains prolong?

What the gladsome tidings be

Which inspire your heavenly song?


Come to Bethlehem and see

Christ Whose birth the angels sing;

Come, adore on bended knee,

Christ the Lord, the newborn King.


See Him in a manger laid,

Whom the choirs of angels praise;

Mary, Joseph, lend your aid,

While our hearts in love we raise.



An al­ter­nate trans­la­tion, by George Rat­cliffe Wood­ward (1848-1934):

Shepherds in the field abiding,

Tell us when the seraph bright

Greeted you with wondrous tiding,

What you saw and heard that night.


We beheld-it is no fable-

God incarnate, King of bliss,

Swathed and cradled in a stable,

And the angel strain was this:


Choristers on high were singing

Jesus and His virgin birth,

Heavenly bells the while a-ringing

"Peace, good will to men on earth."

Hark The Herald Angel Sings

Hark The Herald Angel Sings Lyrics

Hark the Herald Angels Sing Lyrics:

Hark the herald angels sing

"Glory to the newborn King!

Peace on earth and mercy mild

God and sinners reconciled"

Joyful, all ye nations rise

Join the triumph of the skies

With the angelic host proclaim:

"Christ is born in Bethlehem"

Hark! The herald angels sing

"Glory to the newborn King!"

Christ by highest heav'n adored

Christ the everlasting Lord!

Late in time behold Him come

Offspring of a Virgin's womb

Veiled in flesh the Godhead see

Hail the incarnate Deity

Pleased as man with man to dwell

Jesus, our Emmanuel

Hark! The herald angels sing

"Glory to the newborn King!"

Hail the heav'n-born Prince of Peace!

Hail the Son of Righteousness!

Light and life to all He brings

Ris'n with healing in His wings

Mild He lays His glory by

Born that man no more may die

Born to raise the sons of earth

Born to give them second birth

Hark! The herald angels sing

"Glory to the newborn King!"

It Came Upon A Midnight Clear.

It Came Upon A Midnight Clear Lyrics

It Came Upon A Midnight Clear:

It came upon the midnight clear,

That glorious song of old,

From angels bending near the earth

With news of joy foretold,

"Peace on the earth, good will to men

From heaven's all gracious King."

The world in solemn stillness lay,

To hear the angels sing.

Still through the cloven skies they come,

Love's banner all unfurled;

And still their heavenly music floats

Over all the weary world.

Above its sad and lowly plains

Old echoes plaintive ring,

And ever over its Babel sounds

The blessed angels sing.

Yet with the woes of sin and strife

The world has suffered long;

Beneath the Angel-strain have rolled

Two thousand years of wrong;

And man at war with man hears not

The love-song which they bring;

O! hush the noise, ye men of strife,

And hear the Angels sing.

O ye, beneath life's crushing load

Whose forms are bending low,

Who toil along the climbing way

With painful steps and slow;

Look now! for glad and golden hours

Come swiftly on the wing;

O rest beside the weary road

And hear the angels sing.

For lo! the days are hastening on,

By prophets seen of old,

When with the ever-circling years

Shall come the time foretold,

When the new heaven and earth shall own

The Prince of Peace their King,

And the whole world send back the song

Which now the angels sing.

Guardian Angels, Our Silent Protectors.

So many times in our lives we've had unexplained miracles that can only be attributed to these angels, who are sent to protect us here on earth. I've found some beautiful Guardian Angel poetry that I included for you to read below, as well as some more lovely photos from

Guardian Angel Poetry

Guardian Angel

You swept me off my feet

And put into my heart such fiery heat

At first sight I would not have known

The kind of love and protection I'd be shown

You've helped me through the good and bad

For meeting you I am so glad

You are my guardian angel and soulmate

And we both know it is fate

Forever you will hold me in your arms

Because of you I know I'll never be harmed

I am yours and you are mine

Forever and ever will be just fine

My Guardian Angel

On Your Christening Day

Dear Father who art in heaven

please belss this child today

christened this day in your

holy name with the love

and care of your perfect way.

Please bless this guardian angel

to watch over this precious babe

and protect this innocent child

with your loving care to be forever

safe and always close to you

My Guardian Angel

My angel's right beside me,

wherever I may go,

keeping close watch over me,

he's my husband don't you know.

God took him away from me,

not so long ago,

but he promised he'd never leave me,

dear lord I miss him so.

But I know he's right beside me,

wherever I may go,

for he's my guardian angel,

my love, my life, my soul.

In loving memory of Jerry Joe Webb

I have a Guardian Angel,

She doesn't grant wishes,

Or sprinkle magic fairy dust.

Rather she tells me when I should,

When I shouldn't,

Ands when I must.

Guardian Angel

At times when I am feeling sad

and think that no one cares,

I feel the vibrations of your wings

and know that you are here.

I then feel your tender touch

as you enfold me with His Love.

A yearning prayer has come to earth,

sent down from Father above.

I can never deny your presence.

You fill my heart with song.

All sad thoughts simply disappear,

knowing that I am not alone.

You loan me strength when I give out.

And you raise my courage up.

I can face my troubles head-on

Mortal thanks is not enough.

I will live each day I have

in humbleness and in prayer.

With heartfelt words I'll write

and with all others, share.

Your Guardian Angel

You have a Guardian Angel

Who watches over you -

Everywhere you go

And everything you do.

This gentle, silent helper

Is there to be your guide

To shelter and protect you,

And for you to walk beside.

Your Angel will always help you

Whenever things go wrong,

They'll be the wings beneath your feet

As Life's path you walk along.

Feel this calming presence -

Be enfolded by its love

And let your life be guided

By a power from above.


Guardian Angel

Dear Guardian Angel

Close friend of mind

You watch from above

And coax the sun to shine

Dear Guardian Angel

Close friend of mine

Fold me gently in your wings

I need never look behind

Dear Guardian Angel

My friend, my heart, my love

I may never have your courage or strength

But I will always look for you above

Guardian Angel

I will sing a lullaby

When sleep will not come

I will hold your hand

Through good times and bad

I will brush away your tears

When emotions begin to flood

For I am your Guardian Angel.

I will watch over your soul

Should it ever go astray

I will always hold your heart

Even after judgement day

I will comfort your sadness

And keep your pain at bay

For I am your Guardian Angel

I will always be there

No matter when you call

I will be the one

Who helps you through it all

I am the one sent by God

To always watch over you

For I am your Guardian Angel

I am your Guardian Angel.

Guardian Angel

I've got my Guardian Angel watching over me;

Yet I must still step carefully.

I've been given the choice to decide;

But if I'm not careful I just might slide.

The same holds true for my spiritual walk.

I must take time with Jesus daily; and talk.

Cause if I'm not careful I could fall down;

Then my feet won't be on solid ground.

So I will live my life prayerfully;

And take each step through life carefully.

Then I'll be sure to keep

My Guardian Angel

Watching over me !

Danise Norwak Hahlbohm

My Guardian Angel

Dear Angel ever at my side,

how lovely you must be---

To leave your home in heaven,

to guard a child like me.

When I'm far away from home,

or maybe hard at play--

I know you will protect me,

from harm along the way.

Your beautiful and shining face,

I see not, though you're near.

The sweetness of your lovely voice,

I cannot really hear.

When I pray, you're praying too,

Your prayer is just for me.

But ,when I sleep you never do,

You're watching over me.

psalm 91:11-12

Guardian Angels

God gave us each an angel

To watch over us with love.

They're always carrying messages

To Him in Heaven above.

They warn us during danger,

Encourage us to do what is right,

And will always guard and guide us,

Throughout the day and night.

God sent them to protect us,

When crisis comes our way,

And to aid us with our problems

That we encounter every day.

Thank You, my God in Heaven,

For our Guardian Angels dear.

They're just a token of Your love

To help us overcome life's fears.

Shirley Hile Powell

Guardian Angel

We couldn't be

Because we were distant by the sea

But together in our hearts

But now we are apart

We are apart by life

God took you in the middle of the night on 7-21-00

But now you're in a better place

And I'm never going to forget the smiles on your face

The hugs that you gave

The kisses i still can taste

The memories that we shared

The meaning that we cared

The times we spent together

Those moments will last forever

Your time came to an end

But you will always be my friend

I wish you were here

But I know your spirit is near

Thank you for everything

But now you have heaven's wings

You and Armando are Angels
