446. The Lord Bless and Keep You

The Lord bless and keep you in his favor
as his chosen, cherished heir;
the Lord make his face shine on you ever
and enfold you in his care.
The Lord lift his countenance upon you,
may wher-e'er you go his Spirit lead you,
and his peace on you bestow;
Amen, Amen, be it so.
