Keep Us in Peace

O Lord our God,
keep us in peace
during this night
and at all times.
Keep our hearts
and thoughts secure
in holy reverence for you,
so that we may be protected at all times
from the snares of the enemy.
And let us offer blessing and glory
to the Father
and to the Son
and to the Holy Spirit,
now and forever
and unto the ages of ages.
Amen.
