  1. Angel of God, ever at my side
    Go to the church for me.
    Kneel in my place at Holy Mass
    Where I desire to be.
    At the Offertory be in my stead
    Take all I am and own
    And place it as a sacrifice
    Upon the Altar throne.
    When the Priest Communion takes O!
    Bring my Lord to me.
    That his sweet Heart may rest on mine.
    And I His temple be.
    Do pray for those I dearly love
    And those that cause me grief
    That Jesus' blood may cleanse all hearts.
    And suffering souls relieve.
    That this Sacrifice divine
    May mankind sins efface
    And bring my Jesus blessing home
    The pledge of every grace.
