THE SEVEN ANGELS
(Lyrics)

Dream, my dear, while the night still lingers, dream of peace and dream of love
You may hear the heavenly singers, as they sing from up above
These are dreams you may not remember, but they will dwell in your heart
The fire dies down to a single ember and soon the coming day will start
Rest your head on the feathered pillow, pull the covers to your chin
Around you the angels robes will billow and keep you safe deep within

Hush! My dear, lie still and slumber
Holy Angels guard thy bed
They are white and seven in number
There is nothing for you to dread
Hush! my dear, do not encumber
Your sweet dreams as the spirit sings
The angels watch while you slumber
You are safe folded in their wings

Ah! My dear, I’ll be with you always while you wake or while you sleep
Remember down life’s empty hallways, sweet memories you can keep
When I have gone and you miss me so, look into the empty air
Nigh amongst the deepening shadow, you will see me standing there
The seven angels standing near me sent to us from Heaven’s Gate
And as you look, you will see more clearly that the number now is eight

Hush! My dear, lie still and slumber
Holy angels guard thy bed
They are white and seven in number
There is nothing for you to dread
Hush! My dear, do not encumber
Your sweet dreams as the spirit sings
The Angels watch while you slumber
You are safe folded in their wings
