LYRICS

All Through the Night
verses 1 & 2 Sir Harold Boulton, 1884
3nd verse anonymous

Sleep my love, and peace attend thee, All through the night;
Guardian angels God will lend thee, All through the night.
Soft the drowsy hours are creeping,
Hill and dale in slumber steeping,
I my loving vigil keeping, All through the night.

While the moon her watch is keeping All through the night.
While the weary world is sleeping All through the night.
O'er thy spirit gently stealing
Visions of delight revealing
Breathes a pure and holy feeling All through the night.

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