                 (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

	1. Around the throne of God a band
	Of glorious angels ever stand;
	Bright things they see sweet harps they hold,
	And on their heads are crowns of gold.
	2. Some wait around Him, ready still
	To sing His praise and do His will;
	And some, when He commands them, go
	To guard His servants here below.
	3. Lord, give Thy angels every day
	Command to guide us on our way
	And bid them every evening keep
	Their watch around us while we sleep.
	4. So shall no wicked thing draw near
	To do us harm or cause us fear;
	And we shall dwell, when life is past,
	With angels round Thy throne at last.
