504. Bless Our Loved Ones, Holy Father

1 Bless our loved ones, Holy Father;
Hear our anxious prayer;
By your mercy keep them always
In your care.

2 Jesus, Savior, let your presence
Be their light and guide;
Keep, oh, keep them in their weakness
At your side.

3 When in sorrow, when in danger,
When in loneliness,
In your love look down and comfort
Their distress.

4 May the joy of your salvation
Be their strength and stay!
May they love and may they praise you
Day by day!

5 Holy Spirit, let your teaching
Sanctify their life;
Send your grace that they may conquer
In the strife.

6 Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
God forever true,
Bless them, guide them, save them, keep them
Close to you.
