10570. Angelic Guards

1 I of the Lord my God will say,
He is my refuge and my stay;
To Him for safety I will flee,
In Him my constant trust shall be.

Because thy trust is God alone,
Thy refuge is the Highest One,
No evil shall upon thee come,
Nor plague approach thy guarded home.

2 No nightly terrors shall alarm,
No deadly shaft by day shall harm,
Nor pestilence that walks by night,
Nor plague that wastes in noonday light. [Refrain]

3 Angelic guards at His command
Will bear thee safely in their hands,
Will keep thee, lest, if left alone,
Thou dash thy foot against a stone. [Refrain]
