Guardian Angel

Elias Suikkanen kertoo: Olen kahden Amerikan-sukulaisen kastejuhlaan vääntänyt englanninkielisen version Immi Hellénin ja P. J. Hannikaisen tutusta lastenlaulusta Suojelusenkeli. Prosessi oli työläs, etenkin kun halusin riimitetyn ja laulettavan tuotteen. Tätä toivottiin senioripäivillä jakeluun seniorisivuille.

Guardian Angel

Through dark woods so scary goes our dear child's way.

A beautiful angel takes care night and day.

The journey is weary, the home far away,

:,:this glorious Protector keeps watch all the way.:,:

 

The way is so dark, so rocky the terrain

and slippery pathways cause trouble and pain.

Our dear child could stumble and come into harm

:,:would not this great Helper take hold of his arm!:,:

 

Through dark woods so scary goes our dear child's way.

An Angel of glory attends night and day.

O child, do not ever take your hand away.

:,:Allow that your Angel guards you all the way.:,:
