God Watch Over You

I've no time for religion
maybe doubt's a modern disease
then I look at you and here's what I do:
I wear holes in both my knees.

I pray that God protects you
and if he is busy elsewhere
may his legions speed.

in your hour of need
and surround you till he's there
I pray that God protects you.

God watch over you every minute,
every moment
God Watch over you... and if you fall...

God watch over you,
God watch over you.

I've told your guardian angel
not to let you out of his sight
or attempt to fly if he sees you cry
He's to stand his ground and fight.

God watch over you every minute,
every moment
God Watch over you--and if you fall--
May he stretch out his arm
and catch you, keep you from harm
Or sweep you into his palm but
God watch over you,
God watch over you.

God watch over you
God watch over you.
