Representative Text

1 Father almighty, bless us with your blessing:
answer in love your children's supplication;
Hear now our prayer, the spoken and unspoken;
hear us, Eternal God.

2 Christ of compassion, carry all who seek you
to pastures green beside the peaceful waters;
Most tender guide, in ways of cheerful duty
lead us, good Shepherd.

3 Mother of mercy, from your watch and keeping
no space can part, nor hour of time remove us;
Give us your good, and save us from our evil,
Infinite Spirit.
