Dear Angel Ever At My Side - Lyrics

Dear Angel ever at my side
How loving must thou be,
To leave thy home in heaven to guide
A little child like me.
Thy beautiful and shining face
I see not, though so near;
The sweetness of thy soft low voice
Too deaf am I to hear
But when, dear Spirit! I kneel down
Both morn and night to prayer
Something there is within my heart
Which tells me thou art there.
O, when I pray, thou prayest too
Thy prayer is all for me;
But when I sleep, thou sleepest not,
But watchest patiently.
Then for thy sake, dear Angel! now
More humble will I be:
But I am weak, and when I fall,
Oh, weary not for me:
Then love me, love me, Angel dear!
And I will love thee more;
And help me when my soul is cast
Upon the eternal shore.
