Cherishing My Dear ones


My dear ones, my God,

bless now and keep

in every place where they may be.

Oh God may the most dear love of the angels

and the most dear love of the saints

be guarding the ones I cherish,

and my the dear love of heaven

be guarding our cherishing 

through Jesus our Lord. Amen 

Oh God may your grace be upon the ones I cherish.

Oh God may your graciousness

be upon my cherishing.
