May the Lord guide you and guard you
May He protect you and defend you.
May God bless you, like Rebecca and Rachel,
Tender of heart and pure in spirit.
May you be like Ruth and Esther
May you gladden His eyes and please His heart.
May you be a loving sister and daughter,
Become a caring mother and a worthy wife.
May you grow rich in all virtue
Be kind and modest, patient and gentle
Brave strong and faithful.
May you walk in fear of the Lord always,
Find favour, grace peace and mercy
In generous abundance.
