My Guardian Angel
Dear Angel ever at my side,
how lovely you must be –
to leave your home in heaven,
to guard a child like me.
When I’m far away from home,
or maybe hard at play –
I know you will protect me,
from harm along the way.
Your beautiful and shining face,
I see not, though you’re near.
The sweetness of your lovely voice,
I cannot really hear.
When I pray, you’re praying too,
Your prayer is just for me.
But, when I sleep you never do,
You’re watching over me.
These things I warmly wish for you:
Someone to live, some work to do,
A bit o’ sun, a bit o’ cheer,
And a guardian angel always near.
