Take this man to prison, the man heard Herod say
And then four squads of soldiers came and carried him away
Chained up between two watchmen, Peter tried to sleep
But beyond the walls an endless prayer was lifting for his keep
Then a light cut through the darkness of a lonely prison cell
And the chains that bound the man of God just opened up and fell
And running to his people before the break of day
There was only one thing on his mind, only one thing to say

Angels watching over me, every move I make
Angels watching over me!
Angels watching over me, every step I take
Angels watching over me!

God only knows the times my life was threatened just today
A reckless car ran out of gas before it ran my way
Near misses all around me, accidents unknown
Though I never see with human eyes the hands that lead me home
But I know they're all around me all day and through the night
When the enemy is closing in, I know sometimes they fight
To keep my fight from falling, I'll never turn away
If you're asking what's protecting me then you're gonna hear me say

Got his angels watching over me, every move I make
Angles watching over me!
Angels watching over me, every step I take
Angels watching over me

Angels watching over me
Angels watching over me

Got his angels watching over me, every move I make
Angels watching over me!
Angels watching over me, every step I take
Angels watching over me!

Angels watching over me
Angels watching over me
Angels watching over me
Angels watching over me!

Though I never see with human eyes the hands that lead me home
