Angel of Mercy (Song for Sophie)

Angel of mercy, wherever you roam
Watch o'er my baby when she's alone
Sing to her softly, caress her sweet head
'Til the still of the night greets a new day ahead.
Don't let my baby cry too long.

Stars shine on the valley below
Watch o'er my baby wherever she goes
Light up her path to adventures unknown
Let her dance through the shadows 'til she finds her way home.
Don't let my baby cry too long.

And I'll walk with you as long as I can
Then I'll watch over you through your badlands.

Sweet melody stick in her head
Help her remember a few words I said
Rock her so gently, after I'm gone
Make sure she knows that my love my lingers on
Make sure she knows my love lingers on.
And don't let my baby cry too long,
Don't let my baby cry too long,
Don't let my baby cry too long,
No don't let my baby cry too long.

Angel of mercy, wherever you roam
Watch o'er my baby when I'm old and gone.
