A Sarum Blessing (3)


May God the Father, who created all things out of nothing, bless you.
May the + Son of God keep you, who with his own blood restored lost humanity.
May the Holy Spirit illuminate you: may the outpouring of his loving consolation ever comfort you.
May the Most Holy Trinity deliver you from all evil,
preserve and confirm you in every good work,
and lead you to eternal life.

The blessing can be read as “bless you” or “bless us” as needed.
