Bless To Me This Day

God, bless to me this day,
God bless to me this night;
Bless, O bless, Thou God of grace,
Each day and hour of my life;
    Bless, O bless, Thou 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 sole;
Bless, O God, and give to me Thy love,
O God of gods, bless my rest and my repose;
    Bless, O God, and give to me Thy love,
    And bless, O God of gods, my repose.

- A Prayer of St. Brendan the Navigator
