Catholic Guardian Angel Prayer
Angel of God, my Guardian dear,
to whom His love commits me here,
Ever this day be at my side
to light and guard, to rule and guide,
- Praise the Lord
all you Angels of the Lord!
Guardian Angel Prayer
Guardian Angel from heaven so bright,
Watching beside me to lead me aright,
Fold thy wings round me,
and guard me with love,
Softly sing songs to me of heaven above.
A Mother's Prayer to her Children's Guardian Angel
I humbly salute you,
O you faithful, heavenly Friends of my children!
I give you heartfelt thanks for all the love and goodness you show them.
At some future day I shall, with thanks more worthy than I can now give, repay your care for them, and before the whole heavenly court acknowledge their indebtedness to your guidance and protection.
Continue to watch over them.
Provide for all their needs of body and soul.
Pray, likewise, for me, for my husband, and my whole family, that we may all one day rejoice in your blessed company. Amen
Four Corners to my Bed
Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John,
Bless the bed that I lie on!
Four corners to my bed,
Five angels there lie spread;
Two at my head,
Two at my feet,
One at my heart,
My soul to keep.
Taken from The Big Book of Nursery Rhymes (circa 1920) edited by Walter Jerrold. Percy B. Green, who penned "A History of Nursery Rhymes" in 1899, called this a "Charm Against Ghosts"
"The Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John rhymes were well known in Essex in Elizabeth's time. Ady, in his 'Candle After Dark,' 1655, mentions an old woman he knew, who had lived from Queen Mary's time, and who had been taught by the priests in those days many Popish charms. The old woman, amongst other rhymes, repeated -
Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John,
The bed be blest that I lay on.
This was to be repeated yearly, thrice on Twelfth Night*, and it would act as a charm until the following year against evil spirits."
*The Twelfth Night is on January 5th, the night before the Epiphany.
Angels, in the early morning
May be seen the Dews among,
Stooping - plucking - smiling - flying -
Do the Buds to them belong?
Angels, when the sun is hottest
May be seen the sands among,
Stooping - plucking - sighing - flying -
Parched the flowers they bear along.
My Guardian Angel
Dear Angel ever at my side,
how lovely you must be-
To leave your home in heaven,
to guard a child like me.
When I'm far away from home,
or maybe hard at play-
I know you will protect me,
from harm along the way.
Your beautiful and shining face,
I see not, though you're near.
The sweetness of your lovely voice,
I cannot really hear.
When I pray, you're praying too,
Your prayer is just for me.
But, when I sleep you never do,
You're watching over me.
There is a little angel
you can put her in your pocket
wear her on a brooch
or place her in a locket
Your angel's always with you
Wherever that you go
She'll always be right by you
Your heart will tell you so
