Angel of God is a Roman Catholic traditional prayer for the intercession of the guardian angel, often taught to young children as the first prayer learned. By enjoining the guardian angel to support the child in a loving way, the prayer echoes God’s abiding love. This piece can be sung in canon.
Angel of God, my guardian dear,
To whom God’s love commits me here,
Ever this day/night,
Be at my side,
To light and guard,
To rule and guide.
