Monday Prayer: Go, My Children

Go, My children, with My blessing, Never alone.
Waking, sleeping, I am with you; You are My own.
In My love's baptismal river I have made you Mine forever.
Go, My children, with My blessing, You are My own.

Go, My children, sins forgiven, At peace and pure.
Here you learned how much I love you, What I can cure.
Here you heard My dear Son's story
Here you touched Him, saw His glory.
Go, My children, sins forgiven, At peace and pure.

Go, My children, fed and nourished, Closer to Me
Grow in love and love by serving, Joyful and free.
Here My Spirit's power filled you; Here His tender comfort stilled you.
Go, My children, fed and nourished, Joyful and free.

I the Lord will bless and keep you And give you peace
I the Lord will smile upon you and give you peace
I the Lord will be your Father, Savior, Comforter, and Brother.
Go, My Children, I will keep you and give you peace.


- Jaroslav J. Vajda

I can't tell you how much I needed those words this morning, especially the second verse. Thank you.
