1 Up above the bright blue sky,
Where the stars are peeping,
Farther still than I can see,
Heavenly watchers over me
Nightly care are keeping.

2 All day long and all night, too,
While I'm safely sleeping,
Busy on their task of love
They are sent from heaven above,
Faithful vigil keeping.

3 And whilst us, from evil things,
Angels are defending,
Little children, robed in white,
Sing before the throne of light,
Daylight never ending.

4 Jesus took them for His own,
Made them pure and holy,
And on earth His gentle love
Trained them for their home above,
Safe from sin and folly.

5 Blessed Jesus, take me, too,
Though I'm weak and lowly,
Let Thy gentle grace within
Make my garments white and clean,
And my spirit holy.
