Representative Text

1 When you're sleeping, children fair,
Angels keeping watch are there,
Through the night, till comes the light,
And you say your morning prayer.

2 When you're playing all the day,
When you wander far away,
By your side an angel guide
Watches, lest you go astray.

3 When, heart weary, each has trod
Life's great journey all the road,
Angel hands, to other lands,
Carry back the soul to God.
