A Blest House
God bless the corners of this house
and be the lintel blest.
And bless the hearth and bless the board
and bless each place of rest.
And bless each door that opens wide
to strangers as to kin.
And bless each crystal window pane
that lets the starlight in.
And bless the rooftree overhead
and every sturdy wall,
The peace of man, the peace of God,
the peace of love on all.
