Love fear not if sad thy dreaming,
          All through the night.
Though o’ercast, bright stars are gleaming,
          All through the night.
    Joy will come to thee at morning,
    Life with sunny hope adorning,
Tho’ sad dreams may give dark warning,
          All through the night.

Angels watching ever ’round thee,
          All through the night.
In thy slumbers close surround thee,
          All through the night.
    They should of all fear disarm thee,
    No forebodings should alarm thee,
They will let no peril harm thee,
          All through the night.
