May God bless you and keep you; may God’s face shine upon you and be gracious unto you; may God’s countenance be lifted upon you and give you peace, from this day forth and forevermore.
Love’s wonder lives in us; let us live in love.
Love’s music sings through us; let us sing love’s song.
Love’s anguish weeps through us; let us weep love’s tears.
Love’s power heals through us; let us heal with love.
Love’s welcome works through us; let us offer love.
