Psalm 91

He who dwells within the shelter of the Most High, who abides within the shadow of the Almighty,

will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress; my God, in whom I belief.”

For He will ship you from the snare of the fowler and from the lethal pestilence;

He will cowl you with His pinions, and underneath His wings one can find refuge; His faithfulness is a defend and buckler.

You won’t worry the fear of the night time, nor the arrow that flies by day,

nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.

You will solely look along with your eyes and see the recompense of the depraved.

Because you might have made the LORD your refuge, the Most High your habitation,

no evil shall befall you, no scourge come close to your tent.

For He will give His angels cost of you to protect you in all of your methods.

On their palms they may bear you up, lest you sprint your foot in opposition to a stone.

You will tread on the lion and the adder, the younger lion and the serpent you’ll trample underneath foot.

Because he cleaves to me in love, I’ll ship him; I’ll shield him, as a result of he is aware of my title.

When he calls to me, I’ll reply him; I might be with him in hassle, I’ll rescue him and honor him.

With lengthy life I’ll fulfill him, and present him my salvation.

From Johnnette Benkovic’s Graceful Living: Meditations to Help You Grow Closer to God Day by Day

They come, God’s messengers of affection,
They come from realms of peace above,
From houses of never-fading gentle,
From blissful mansions ever vivid.
They come to observe round us right here,
To soothe our sorrow, calm our worry:
Ye heavenly guides, pace not away,
God willeth you with us to remain.
But mainly at its journey’s finish ’
Tis yours the spirit to befriend,
And whisper to the keen coronary heart, ‘
O Christian soul, in peace depart.’
To us the zeal of angels give,
With like to serve thee whereas we reside;
To us an angel-guard provide,
When on the mattress of demise we lie.
To God the Father, God the Son,
And God the Spirit, Three in One,
From all above and all under
Let joyful reward unceasing circulation.
