Have you ever thought of Angels
Watching over you at night?
Have you asked for their protection
At the early morning light?
Have you heard a word of caution
FaIling softly on your ear?
Or in times of sudden danger,
Have you sensed them drawing near?
Have you almost heard their footsteps
At the closing of the day,
When your heart communed with Jesus
And your burdens slipped away?
Though unseen, they’re always ready
To respond to God’s command —
Messengers come down from Heaven,
Sent to lead us by the hand.
ANGELS ARE NEAR.
Know that our Guardian Angels are near
When the perils of life collide.
God sends them to guard and protect us
And over our lives they preside.
They are sent by God to surround us
And help us along life’s way.
We are warned of harm and danger
By them every moment of the day.
They prompt us to do God’s holy will
And encourage us to do good deeds.
They urge us to keep God’s Commandments
And to help those who might be in need.
Sometimes a tiny shiver or whirl
Alerts us that they are near.
A calm and peace seems to follow
And eliminates our present fear.
While in His holy presence,
They speak to God above,
Then return to earth to tell us
Of His eternal and everlasting love.
