Guardian Angel

"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

Dear Angel

Angel, guardian of my soul,
You fill my soul's voids with God's grace;
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.
