Oh how I wish that there might be
An angel watching over me
To keep my life safe from great harm
Or when I err, sound an alarm.
Perhaps an angel on standby
To comfort me if I should cry
Or if the night is extra bold,
Warm hands to shield me from the cold.
Perchance if I wish hard enough
The path ahead won’t be so rough,
Whatever help God offers me
I shall accept most gratefully !
