Verse 1


When at night I go to sleep
Fourteen angels watch do keep;
Two my head are guarding,
Two my feet are guiding;
Two are on my right hand,
Two are on my left hand,
Two who warmly cover
Two who o'er me hover,
Two to whom 'tis given
To guide my steps to heaven.

Verse 2

When at night I go to sleepFourteen angels watch do keep;Two my head are guarding,Two my feet are guiding;Two are on my right hand,Two are on my left hand,Two who warmly coverTwo who o'er me hover,Two to whom 'tis givenTo guide my steps to heaven.


Sleeping sofly, then it seems
Heaven enters in my dreams;
Angels hover round me,
Whisp'ring they have found me;
Two are sweetly singing,
Two are garlands bringing,
Strewing me with roses
As my soul reposes.
God will not forsake me
When dawn at last will wake me.
