In some Christian theology, the Morning Star refers to Lucifer. Some interpret that Morning Star was Lucifer before the fall. Jesus refers to himself as the bright Morning Star in Revelation 22:16, “I Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and Offspring of David, and the bright morning star.” Some believe that the song is telling us that Jesus, the dawn of light, is leading us through troubles with the Holy Spirit. The spell referenced in the song would be love and faith.

Many songs have been written about angels. Our culture is fascinated by angels. We love them because they do what we cannot. We recognize our insufficiency and our need for the help of our angelic intercessors. Thankfully, God has provided for us by giving us angels to be with us to light, to guard, to rule and to guide. These songs remind us of the power and influence of angels, not only in our culture, but also in our lives.
