A short poem for a nightime prayer for children
|Angels Watch Over You
Good night, beloved child of mine,
time for sweet dreams to come true,
seek and believe the heavenly signs
of God’s angels coming now to you.
Angels watch over you, my little love,
keeping you from harm until morn,
God sends his holy, winged messengers
to watch over you until day is reborn.
An aura of a fragrance unknown,
a barely felt caress upon your cheek,
a white light just beyond your vision,
all are signs of an angel, should you seek.
Know that an angel is beside you,
quietly singing to you a celestial song,
while, with right and might, angel is guarding
For God, to Whom you eternally belong.
