Keep watch, dear Lord



Keep watch, dear Lord, 

with those who work, 

or watch, 

or weep this night,


and give your angels charge over those who sleep.

Tend the sick, Lord Christ;


 give rest to the weary, 

bless the dying, 

soothe the suffering, 

pity the afflicted, 

shield the joyous; 

and all for your love's sake. 

Amen.

Written by Charles M. Guilbert, custodian of the BCP... and read at his place of permanent rest 2nd floor NW columbarium --Grace Cathedral in San Francisco... I can't read nor hear it without thinking of that.

Thank you Peter. Many blessings.
