Guardian Angels
Joshua H. S. Mann, 1860

Angels guard you till the morning light;
Let no fearful dreams distress you,
But with peaceful slumber bless you,
Angels guard you till the morning light!

Refrain

Till the morning, the morning light!
Thro’ the long and dreary hours of night,
Angels guard you till the morning light!

Angels guard you till the morning light;
Let no midnight foe annoy you,
Nor the tempter’s wiles decoy you,
Angels guard you till the morning light!

Refrain

Angels guard you till the morning light;
Hov’ring round and ever near you,
Sent from Heav’n to bless and cheer you,
Angels guard you till the morning light!

Refrain
