"For he will give his angels charge
of you to guard you in all your ways. On
their hands they will bear you up, lest you
dash your foot against a stone." 1
"Are they not all ministering spirits
sent forth to serve, for the sake of those
who are to obtain salvation?" 2
Angel, guardian of my soul,
image (c) Teresa Satola,
You fill my soul's voids with God's
You wrestle me from my control,
And lift me to a higher place.
Angel, guardian of my heart,
You keep me from the grip of fear;
When pain and sin tear me apart,
You let me know that you are near.
Angel, guardian of my mind,
You lead me through my darkest night;
Whene'er my pride has made me blind,
You shine on me with heaven's light.
Angel, you are God's gift to me:
You intercede before His throne;
you lead me to eternity,
Where we shall live for God alone.
Lead on, dear Angel, through this night;
Draw me to God in heaven's light.
