Lyrics

In time of temptation, I hear a sweet voice,
So tenderly whisper to me,
Be strong in the Lord, sweetly rest on His Word,
The angels have charge over thee.

Refrain

The angels have charge over thee,
To keep thee in all thy ways
;
This blessèd assurance brings peace to my soul,
My heart is o’erflowing with praise.

When trials arise, and when danger is near,
A light in the darkness I see;
This promise so blest bringeth comfort and rest,
The angels have charge over thee.

Refrain

Then rest, sweetly rest, on the promise of God,
From sin and its power be free;
O be of good cheer, there is nothing to fear,
The angels have charge over thee.
