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
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.Source: Christian Worship: a Lutheran hymnal #504
