Once up the “wooden hill”, we knelt down by the side of our beds to say our prayers, beginning with “Our Father” followed by “Gentle Jesus” and finishing with “God bless Mummy and Daddy and keep me a good little girl (boy)”. On one occasion when one of my numerous cousins was staying with us, I was quite startled, when after the usual prayers, Peggy burst into loud song, or rather, hymn, and I have never forgotten it,

 

“Lord keep us safe this night, secure from all our fears,

May angels guard us while we sleep, till morning light appears.”

 

It is, of course, a well known couplet and widely sung, but I had never heard it before, and was completely taken aback at the unexpected solo.
