A Clare Benediction
Language: English 
Available translation(s): FRE
May the Lord
Show His mercy upon you;
May the light
Of His presence be your guide:
May He guard you and uphold you;
May His Spirit be ever by your side.
When you sleep,
May His angels watch over you;
When you wake,
May He fill you with His grace:
May you love Him
And serve Him all your days.
Then in heaven
May you see His face.
