"Fold your wings round them"

There are times when my children are sleeping, peacefully and soundly, that I ask for God to hold them tight, to protect them and guide them through life.  Today I pray that He looks after all of the children I already know and love, and those who I have yet to meet...

O Angels of God, from heaven so bright,
watching beside my children to lead them aright;
Fold your wings round them, and guard them with love;
Softly sing songs to them of heaven above.
