1  Holy Father, in Thy mercy,
Hear our anxious prayer;
Keep our loved ones, now far distant,
'Neath Thy care.

2  Jesus, Saviour, let Thy presence
Be their light and guide;
Keep, O keep them, in their weakness,
By Thy side.

3  When in sorrow, when in danger,
When in loneliness,
In Thy love look down and comfort
Their distress.

4  May the joy of Thy salvation
Be their strength and stay;
May they love and may they praise Thee
Day by day.

5  Holy Spirit, let Thy teaching
Sanctify their life;
Send Thy grace that they may conquer
In the strife.

6  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
God the One in Three,
Bless them, guide them, save them, keep them
Near to Thee.
