Songs of Joy and Glad­ness, 1885 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Like Jacob in his Bethel rest,
The angels are looking on me;
They watch my pillow—I am blest,
The angels are looking on me.

Refrain

All night, all night,
The angels are looking on me;
All night, all night,
The angels are looking on me.

Each night I lay me down to sleep,
The angels are looking on me;
I know I’m safe, for angels keep,
The angels are looking on me.

Refrain

And when I wake, new toils to meet,
The angels are looking on me;
God’s presence makes my joy complete,
The angels are looking on me.

Refrain

A pilgrim to the heav’nly land,
The angels are looking on me;
My steps are kept by God’s command,
The angels are looking on me.

Refrain

And till I reach my home at last,
The angels are looking on me;
With every tear and trial past,
The angels are looking on me.
