The Guardian Angel prayer

Christ promises that each one of us has a guardian angel who protects us from harm, both physical and spiritual. In this prayer, traditionally one of the first that young children learn, we ask our guardian angel to watch over us.

Here is the prayer:

O Angel of God, my guardian dear, 
to whom His love 
entrusts me here, 
ever this day [or night] 
be at my side 
to light and guard,
to rule and guide. Amen.
