Peace between Neighbors

Print this Page

Peace between neighbors,
Peace between kindred,
Peace between lovers,
in love of the King of life.

Peace between person and person,
Peace between wife and husband,
Peace between woman and children,
The peace of Christ above all peace.

Bless, O Christ, my face,
Let my face bless every thing;
Bless, O Christ, mine eye,
Let mine eye bless all it sees.
