The Guardian Angel's Lament

Thou hast sorrowed the spirit that loved thee,

And watched o'er thy footsteps for years:

Thou hast made me at last sigh o'er thee,

In secret, in silence, and tears.

For my Father in Heaven I loved thee,

For His sake have I guarded thy ways.

Return, O return, I implore thee,

Him to love, to serve, and to praise.

O'er thy pathway through life still I hover.

Thee to comfort, to solace, to cheer;

With the love of a fond, saving brother,

Through this desert of trial and fear.

Oh! When shall I clasp thee, how fondly

And bear thee, all dangers no past,

To the arms of God Who dies for thee

To our home in the heavens at last!
