Evening Prayer (When at Night I Go to Sleep)
From “Hansel & Gretel (Engelbert Humperdinck) 
When at night I go to sleep
Fourteen angels watch do keep
Two my head are guarding
Two my feet are guiding
Two are on my right hand
Two are on my left hand
Two who warmly cover
Two who o’er me hover
Two to whom ‘tis given
To guide my steps to heaven

Sleep softly, then it seems
Heaven enters in my dreams;
Angels hover round me
Whisper’ring they have found me;
Two are sweetly singing,
Two are garlands bringing,
Strewing me with roses
As my soul reposes.
God will not forsake me
When dawn at last will wake me.
