Our Home

House Blessing

Small Yellow Cross

Bless this house, O Lord, we pray.
Make it safe by night and day.
Bless these walls so firm and stout, keeping want and trouble out.
Bless the roof and chimney tall, let thy peace lie over all.
Bless the doors that they may prove ever open to joy and love.
Bless the windows shining bright, letting in God’s heavenly light.
Bless the hearth a-blazing there, with smoke ascending like a prayer.
Bless the people here within… keep them pure and free from sin.
Bless us all, that one day, we may be fit, O Lord, to dwell with Thee. Amen.

House And Dwellers Blessing

Small Yellow Cross

Visit, we beseech Thee, O Lord, this dwelling, 
and drive far from it all snares of the enemy; 
let Thy Holy Angels dwell herein, 
to preserve us in peace; 
and let Thy blessing be upon us forever. 
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Irish House Blessing

God bless the corners of this house,
and be the lintel blessed,
and bless the hearth,
and bless the board,
and bless each place of rest.
Bless each door that opens wide to strangers and to kin,
and bless each crystal windowpane
that lets the sunshine in.
And bless the rooftree overhead,
and every sturdy wall. 
The peace of man.
The peace of God.
The peace of love to All.
