A New Testament Blessing (1 Thessalonians)

May God our Father himself
and our Lord Jesus
increase your love
and make it overflow for each other
and for all people,
so that he  may establish your hearts
as blameless in holiness
before our God and Father,
when our Lord + Jesus comes
with all his saints.

Unshortened, it reads:

May God our Father himself and our Lord Jesus direct our way to you. And may the Lord increase your love and make it overflow for each other and for all people, just as ours does for you, so that he  may establish your hearts as blameless in holiness before our God and Father, when our Lord Jesus comes with all his saints.
