Grace of Love be Yours

Print this Page

Grace of love be yours,
Grace of floor be yours,
Grace of castle be yours,
Grace of court be yours,
Grace and pride of homeland be yours.

The guard of the God of life be yours,
The guard of the loving Christ be yours,
The guard of the Holy Spirit be yours,

To cherish you,
To aid you,
To enfold you.

The Three be about your head,
The Three be about your breast,
The Three be about your body
Each night and each day,
In the encompassment of the Three
Throughout your life long.
