1 They leave their place on high,
They leave their place on high,
They leave the everlasting hymn
Where cherubim and seraphim
All ceaselessly do cry,
All ceaselessly do cry.
2 They come to us by day,
They come to us by day,
While, great and small, through joy and woe,
Along our earthly course we go,
To guard us on our way,
To guard us on our way.
3 They slumber not nor sleep,
They slumber not nor sleep,
Whom you have sent, O God of light,
Around your own the livelong night
Their watch and ward to keep,
Their watch and ward to keep.
4 All glory be to you,
All glory be to you,
For those who at your bidding go
To guard and keep us here below,
Most holy Trinity,
Most holy Trinity.
