May The Lord In Love And Mercy

May the Lord in love and mercy,
Watch between us while apart;
And the cord of true affection,
Bind together every heart.

May the Lord keep watch between us,
When our ways lie apart,
May the blessing of His presence,
Comfort every lonely heart.

May the One who never slumbers,
Over us His vigil keep;
Then will we be safe from danger,
When we walk or when we sleep. [Refrain]

When long absent from each other,
May we trust our Father’s care;
He will guard us from all peril,
He is present everywhere. [Refrain]
