My 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.
