All Through the Night


I just loved this image of children and the angels and doves all around. It reminded me of the Christmas carol or lullaby All Through the Night. I have sung it to many children so I will let you have a copy of the words, carol or to calm a sleepyhead at nap time or bedtime, this is a sweet and beautiful melody, who could use angels on guard or wouldn’t want them watching All Through the Night?

Sleep my child and peace attend thee,
All through the night
Guardian angels God will send thee,
All through the night
Soft the drowsy hours are creeping
Hill and vale in slumber sleeping,
I my loving vigil keeping
All through the night.

While the moon her watch is keeping
All through the night
While the weary world is sleeping
All through the night
O’er they spirit gently stealing
Visions of delight revealing
Breathes a pure and holy feeling
All through the night.

Love, to thee my thoughts are turning
All through the night
All for thee my heart is yearning,
All through the night.
Though sad fate our lives may sever
Parting will not last forever,
There’s a hope that leaves me never,
All through the night

It also ties in well with good gifts from the Father, sleep for the beloved Psalm 127: 2 and His rest, Hebrews 4.

His peace, Rebecca Jones
