The original version for solo soprano appeared on Patrick’s Number One album ‘Angel’.  Patrick was then approached by the amazing Voces8 choir to produce a choral version which featured on their album Lux.  Countless people believe they have a guardian angel and the church observes The Feast of the Guardian Angels on 2nd October each year.  This song reflects the dark emotions and thoughts of a human soul as it prays to a guardian angel for comfort and healing.

Another version for SSAATTBarB and harp is also available.

Come in the night
Silent and still,
Angel of light
show the truth of love’s will.
Dark is my soul
And fearful my mind:
Help me the purest
and gentlest way find.

Come in the dawn
When all is lost,
Angel of comfort
Take hold of my hand.
Lift me, enfold me,
Help me to see
That all of your treasures
give power to break free.

Come in the noon
Of bright sunlit days;
Angel of joy
Give me right words to say.
Inspire my heart
with truth from above;
Renew my life in the healing
of perfect love.

Words: Andrew Hawes (1954 –   )
