To Angela Maria

My Guardian Angel brave and true
I am happy to be named for you.
I am glad to find
That in my mind
Each thought must be angelic too.

I know it must be your delight
To see from such celestial height
This tiny frame,
Your august name,
To the name of your Queen unite.

Therefore I beg with your wings to hide me
Direct my every step and guide me,
By night and day,
Whenever I pray,
Dear Angel come and pray beside me.
