Angels Guard Thee Bead

Angels Guard Thee – inspiration for handcrafted jewelry

This Angels Guard Thee pebble bead by Green Girl Studios made me curious. A Google search for the phrase “Angels Guard Thee” lead to this inspiring music that moved me to tears.

What beauty unfolds in the imagination from this melody and verse!! I hope this inspires you to design and create a meaningful piece of handcrafted jewelry.

I am not sure what caused Green Girl Studios to create this little bead, but I am thankful that it lead me to experience this moving music.

This lullaby (berceuse) comes from the 1888 Opera “Jocelyn” by Benjamin Goddard and is sung by Kenneth McKellar.

Angels Guard Thee

Beneath the quivering leaves, where shelter comes at last,
All sadness sinks to rest, or glides into the past.
Her sweet eyes prismed now in their soft silken bowers,
Oh my love, calm she sleeps beneath the trembling stars.

Awake not yet from thy repose,
A fair dream spirit hovers near thee,
Weaving a web of gold and rose,
Through dreamland’s happy isles to bear thee.
Sleep, love, it is not yet the dawn,
Angels guard thee, sweet love, till morn.

Far from the noisy throng, by song birds lulled to rest,
Where rock the branches high by breezes soft caressed;
Softly the days go on, by sorrow all unharmed,
Thus may life be to thee a sweet existence charmed.

Awake not yet from thy repose,
A fair dream spirit hovers near thee,
Weaving a web of gold and rose,
Through dreamland’s happy isles to bear thee.
Sleep, love, it is not yet the dawn,
Angels guard thee, sweet love, till morn.
