|Angel of God,
my guardian dear,
To whom God's love
commits me here,
Ever this day,
be at my side,
To light and guard,
Rule and guide.
"From infancy to death human life is
surrounded by their (the angels) watchful care and
intercession. Beside each believer stands an angel as
protector and shepherd leading him to life. Already here
on earth the Christian life shares by faith in the
blessed company of angels and men united to God."
