Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Full Text

1 The God of love, in heav’n above, Has angels ’round his throne,
Down from the sky, their home on high, He sends them to his own,
He sends them to his own.

2 “Go guard my sheep, their ways to keep, From dangers lurking near.
Protect them all, that none may fall, And keep them free from fear,
And keep them free from fear.”

3 At God’s command to ev’ry land On earth the angels come.
They do his will and guard us still So we are not alone,
So we are not alone.

4 Dear children all, both great and small, Our dear Lord loves us so.
For ev’rywhere that we may fare, His angels also go,
His angels also go.
