Refrain:
All night, all day,
angels watching over me, my Lord.
All night, all day,
angels watching over me.

1 Now I lay me down to sleep.
Angels watching over me, my Lord.
Pray the Lord my soul to keep.
Angels watching over me. ([Refrain]

2 Lord, stay with me through the night.
Angels watching over me, my Lord.
Wake me with the morning light.
Angels watching over me. [Refrain]
