All night, all day, angels watchin' over me, my Lord.
All night, all day, angels watchin' over me.

Day is dyin' in the west, angels watchin' over me, my Lord,
sleep my child an take your rest, angels watchin' over me.

Now I lay me down and sleep, angels watchin' over me, my Lord,
pray the Lord my soul to keep, angels watchin' over me.

Thy love stay with me thro' the night, angels watchin' over me, my Lord,
wake me with the mornin' light, angels watchin' over me.

If I die before I 'wake, angels watchin' over me, my Lord,
pray the Lord my soul to take, angels watchin' over me.
 
If I live another day, angels watchin' over me, my Lord,
pray the lord will guide my way, angels watchin' over me.
