Identify this pop song with strings

I heard a song in a store. Could you help me identify it in lieu of my phone?

I caught only the tail end of the song (and it was super quiet so I couldn't catch enough of the lyrics to search). Can anyone help me identify it?

-Singer is female. Voice is clear, no nasal-y/sultry undertones (at least in the lines I managed to catch).
-Song is in English
-It was streamed off of iTunes' "BestNet Radio"; probably the Top 40 pop, warm and soft, or Christmas pop music channels. (iTunes doesn't list song names in the playlist, otherwise this would be easier.) I heard it yesterday around 10:15-11 am Pacific time.
-It's a ballad-y song, lots of violins/strings with backing piano. No disco, dance, drums, synth, or overly loud beat. Softer pop would be my guess.
-Stylistically, I'd peg the song style as late 90s to late 2000s.
-The only part of the lyrics I caught was the second-last and last lines of the chorus:

Second last line...I think start with "angels" or something similar
Last line: "here we are" (here we come?) something something...line is about 9-10 syllables long. [line repeat again as song ends]

I've downloaded Shazam so this doesn't happen again, but this song continues to elude me after two days.

Thank you all!

Sarah McLachlan maybe? 'in the arms of the angels'

(given the time of year and the fact that nobody I know seems to know this song I'm going to offer this... *shrugs* good luck Zelos)

Could it be Alicia Keys, We Are Here?

Response by poster: Unfortunately none of those are it. Oh well, it was a long shot anyway. I'm at the point where I can't even recall the melody anymore, so I'm giving up. Thank you all!
