1 Holy, happy angels
Guard the Christian’s way,
Never from his path they stray;
Ever on their mission,
They their vigils keep,
Guarding all his waking,
Watching all his sleep.

Refrain:
By the gate they’ll meet us,
’Neath the golden sky,
Meet us at the portals,
Meet us by and by;
By the gate they’ll meet us,
’Neath the golden sky,
Meet us at the portals,
Meet us by and by.

2 Tho’ we may not see them
With our mortal eyes,
By the light of Time’s dim skies;
Yet we hear their whispers,
Pointing far away,
To the golden luster
Of eternal day. [Refrain]

3 Holy, happy angels,
Sent us from above,
Thro’ the Savior’s gracious love;
Be ye ever near us,
Guarding all our way,
Till we reach the mansion
Of eternal day. [Refrain]
