1 God shall charge His angel-legions
Watch and ward o’er thee to keep;
Tho’ thou walk thro’ hostile regions,
Tho’ in desert wilds thou sleep.

2 On the lion vainly roaring,
On his young, thy foot shall tread;
And the dragon’s den exploring,
Thou shalt bruise the serpent’s head.

3 Since, with pure and firm affection,
Thou on God has set thy love,
With the wings of His protection
He will shield thee from above.

4 Thou shalt call on Him in trouble,
He will hearken, He will save;
Here for grief reward thee double,
Crown with life beyond the grave.
