O God, whose steadfast love
each family has blessed;
who shields the infant small
upon its mother breast;
Embrace us, too, O God, our God,
and hold us in your loving arms.

In your great love, O God,
full parent hood is known;
a father mourns his child,
a mother’s strength is shown.
Let parents’ faithful lives unbind
your love that through them
we might find Christ’s deeper love
for human kind.

May your household of faith one family become,
that love may be increased and none may be alone;
That mother’s love and father’s care
and children’s joy we all may share.
