The Journey Prayer

CelticCapital28God, bless me this day,
God, bless me this night ;
bless, O bless, God of grace,
each day and hour of my life;
bless, O bless, God of grace,
each day and hour of my life.

God, bless the pathway on which I go,
God, bless the earth that is beneath my feet;
bless, O God, and give me your love,
O God of gods, bless my rest and my repose;
bless, O God, and give me your love,
and bless, O God of gods, my repose.
