The Lord Will Send His Angels Down


The Lord will send His angels down,
To cheer us by the way;
And when we sleep they camp around,
They cheer us by the way.

Refrain:
They cheer us by the way,
They cheer us by the way;
The Lord will send His angels down,
To cheer us by the way.

Tho’ friends have gone to worlds unknown,
They cheer us by the way;
They bid us come and follow on,
They cheer us by the way. [Refrain]

The Lord doth give their spirits charge,
They cheer us by the way;
And when we sleep they watch and guard,
They cheer us by the way. [Refrain]

The angel spirit of our friends,
They cheer us by the way;
And when in trouble they defend,
They cheer us by the way. [Refrain]
