The Shepherds O Farewell to the Holy Family
The Shepherds Õ Farewell to the Holy Family
Leaves he now the place
Where, in a stable, he first saw day.
From his father and his mother
May he inherit a steadfast love!
May he grow and prosper
And be a good father himself.
If, later, among
He comes into harm’s way,
May he flee that wicked place
And, among us, return to safety.
May the shepherd’s simple
Always be dear to his heart.
Dear child, God bless you!
God bless you, happy couple!
May you never sense the blows
May a guardian angel warn you
Of any dangers on your path!
