*May the Lord show his mercy upon you;
May the light of his presence be your guide:
May he guard you and uphold you;
May his spirit be ever by your side.

When you sleep may his angels watch over you;
When you wake may he fill you with his grace:
May you love him and serve him all your days
Then in heaven may you see his face.

May the Lord’s loving kindness surround you;
Keep you safe as you journey on your way:
May he lead you and inspire you
As he grants you the gift of each new day.

May he bless all your loved ones and cherish them;
Ev’ry friend, ev’ry stranger at your door:
In the name of his Son our Saviour Christ
May God bless you now and evermore
