"Truly, the is the indescribable sweetness of contemplation i beg your pardon you provide to those that love you. In this girlfriend have displayed the tenderness of your charity, that once I had actually no gift you do me; and when ns strayed far from you, you carried me ago again to serve you and commanded me come love you." The Imitation that Christ

This isn"t in any type of hymn book I have come across. The is just so beautiful: we had it in ~ the confirmation Mass as a 2nd Communion hymn. Ns think it need to be much more widely known, and so, in honour the my very own Guardian point of view (who is probably white-haired and also popping valium under the stress and also strain of looking the end for me) I"m going to share!Guardian point of view from heaven so bright,watching beside me to command me aright,fold her wings ring me, O security me v love,softly sing songs to me that Heav"n above.Beautiful Angel, my guardian so mild,tenderly overview me, for ns am your child.Angel so divine whom God sends out to me -sinful and lowly - mine guardian come be,wilt thou no cherish the kid of thy care?Let me no perish - my to trust is her care.Beautiful Angel...O might I never ever forget thou arts near;but store me ever, in love and in fear.Waking and also sleeping, in labour and rest,in thy sweet keeping my life shall it is in blessed.Beautiful Angel...

You are watching: Angels of god from heaven so bright

Mac - just out of interest, it"s in a number of old hymn books that most parishes will probably have actually "lost" by now. The publications I have actually (collected from miscellaneous sources) in which it appears include: "Old" Westminster (different tune), Leeds Hymnal , St Andrew"s Hymnal, Hymns for Catholic Schools, and A new School Hymn book (well, "New" when it was released in 1964!) It would certainly be wishful reasoning to expect that several of the components of these old hymn books could be re-published.

NC - no, the song was new (to me) but really easy to pick up... Probably available in one of the books suggested by Augustinus... Alternatively, email Fr Tim and he have the right to send a copy the the music.Augustinus, plenty of thanks for this, and the extra hymn verses.

I remember this one. The belongs come the same part of memory as "Welcome, welcome, welcome Jesus" for very first Communion, and "Dear St Joseph, Spouse that Mary" which had the wonderful last line of the an initial (each?) verse "Teach, O teach, us just how to die". We didn"t have actually fuzzy-wuzzy bear in ours hymns as soon as I to be at primary school.

S-P, this days sanctuaries are used to organize all kinds of things, together a means of fund-raising... Though the Blessed Sacrament shoud have actually been relocated to one Altar the Repose far from the key event.Yes, it"s dreadful, but not surprising.As because that the absence of response, i think it"s a slow-blog-day today...

SP - you might be intrerewted to understand that the concern of this so-called consecration is under discussion at Gerald Augustinus" blog:http://closedcafeteria.ivorycrimestory.com.com/2007/03/episcopal-bishop-to-be-consecrated-in.html

This was among my many favourite hymns as a child. I think the is a northern counties hymn together my other parishioners in the southern of England do not recognize it. However, It has actually been discovered in an old notre Dame institution hymnal.
