If you know where to get a good pho­to of Thay­er (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


In time of temptation, I hear a sweet voice,
So tenderly whisper to me,
Be strong in the Lord, sweetly rest on His Word,
The angels have charge over thee.


The angels have charge over thee,
To keep thee in all thy ways
This blessèd assurance brings peace to my soul,
My heart is o’erflowing with praise.

When trials arise, and when danger is near,
A light in the darkness I see;
This promise so blest bringeth comfort and rest,
The angels have charge over thee.


Then rest, sweetly rest, on the promise of God,
From sin and its power be free;
O be of good cheer, there is nothing to fear,
The angels have charge over thee.
