1 With noiseless step an angel
Doth pass through ev'ry land;
No human eye can see him,
Though he is near at hand.
From heaven, the eternal home,
God sent him, here on earth to roam.
2 From house to house he wanders,
And where a child obeys
Its father and its mother,
The kindly angel stays,
To give the child his faithful care,
And to attend it everywhere.
3 He shares its joyful moments,
And guards it while at play;
He teaches it to study
And promptly to obey.
Of all he says the child takes heed,
And so improves in word and deed.
