MINISTRY OF ANGELS




Angels, those heavenly flames,
Down to this world descend;
And to the meanest child of God,
Their ministry extend.


Prompted by love divine,
They to the cot repair;
And make the most impoverished saint,
The object of their care.


In danger and distress,
To his relief they fly;
His guardians while he wanders here,
His convoy to the sky.


They with each rising morn,
Their friendly acts renew;
But to their sovereign, not to them,
Are all their praises due.


‘Tis God who wings their flight,
‘Tis he inspires their zeal;
They go and come at his command,
And execute his will.
