Watch over Our Paths

antifonariodelec3b3n1O Lord,
you are our redemption.
Be our protection.
Direct our minds by your gracious presence
and watch over our paths
with guiding love,
that among the snares which lie hidden
on this path we walk
we may walk forward
with hearts fixed on you,
that on this path of faith
we may arrive where you want us.
