All Night, All Day (Angels Watching Over Me)

This Gospel style hymn is based on a popular children's bed-time prayer.

Authorship of the words is sometimes credited to American Church of God minister and song-writer Otis Leon McCoy (1897-1995).   However it's not clear whether he wrote the words, or simply an arrangement of the song.

    Lyrics

    Chorus:
    All night, all day,
    angels watching over me, my Lord.
    All night, all day,
    angels watching over me.

    Now I lay me down to sleep.
    Angels watching over me, my Lord.
    Pray the Lord my soul to keep.
    Angels watching over me.

    Lord, stay with me through the night.
    Angels watching over me, my Lord.
    Wake me with the morning light.
    Angels watching over me.
