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.
