Note:
The book does not print the words to the entire chorus.  In my musical arrangment, I’ve taken some liberties (as any folk artist is likely to do).  I sing out the entire chorus, but have adapted it to sing:

All night, all day, angels watching over me, my love
All night, all day, angels watching over me

This little change, I feel creates a song that is not “religious” but in terms of a worship song, but a sweet song for a child to know he or she is loved and protected.
