Angel Of God
Angel of God is a Roman Catholic traditional prayer for the intercession of the guardian angel, often taught to young children as the first prayer learned. It serves as a reminder of God’s love, and by enjoining the guardian angel to support the child in a loving way, the prayer echoes God’s abiding love.
Angel of God
qui custos es mei,
me tibi commissum pietáte supérna,
hodie illúmina, custódi, rege et gubérna.
Angel of God, My guardian Dear,
To whom God’s love commits me here,
Ever this day(say ”night” if you say it at bedtime), Be at my Side,
To light and guard,
To rule and guide,
