Friendship Poems Page 3
Christ be with me, be after me, be before me, and be at my right and left hand. May everything I do be for Christ. God bless the corners of this house And be the lintel blessed. Bless the hearth, the table too And bless each place of rest. Bless each door that opens wide To stranger, kith and kin; Bless each shining window-pane That lets the sunshine in. Bless the roof-tree up above Bless every solid wall. The peace of Man, the peace of love, The peace of God on all.
