Angels of mercy, Angels of love
by Virginia M. King
God's Holy Messengers from above
Guard and protect me throughout the night
And lead me into His heavenly light.
Angels before me guiding my way
angels behind, that I, don't go astray
Angels beneath me lifting me up
Angels above, overflowing my cup.
Angels beside me holding my hands
Thank you dear God for your heavenly bands
You, with your gossamer wings, like a dove
Carry my prayer to heaven above.
