As the princess lie asleep in bed
thoughts of love went through her head.
Dreaming of valleys and quiet streams,
as some of the thoughts filled her dreams.
As she was lying asleep in her bed
two angels hovered above her head.
Goodness and mercy were their names
and they came to stop the devils games.
Goodness knelt and then kissed her head
while mercy drew a circle around her head.
Then drawing swords, they took their place,
while the peace of God showed on her face.
Goodness and mercy showed the princess care
and it was the love of God that they did share.
Safe from harm while the princess did sleep,
as they prayed to God her soul to keep.
