For The Bedroom of a Single Person
Peace be here in the name of the King of life;
The peace of Christ above all peace,
The Lord’s blessing over you.
May God the Father be the guardian of this place
And bring His peace,
That fear may find no entry here.
May Christ be a chosen companion and friend.
May loneliness be banished.
May the Spirit bring lightness and laughter,
And be the comforter of tears.
Courage be at each going out;
Rest be present at each return;
Each day, each night,
Each going out and each returning.
