Evening Prayer

Lyrics

from the opera Hansel and Gretel by Engelbert Humperdinck, 1892

When I lay me down to sleep,
Angels guard o’er me doth keep.
Two on watch are staying,
Two are softly praying.
Two to guard my right hand,
Two to guard my left stand.
Two to slumber take me.
Two from slumber wake me.
Two who watchful tarry,
My soul to God to carry.
