Keep Watch Dear Lord

Keep watch, dear Lord, with those who work, or watch, or weep this night, and give your angels charge over those who sleep. Tend the sick, Lord Christ; give rest to the weary, bless the dying , soothe the suffering, pity the afflicted, shield the joyous; and all for your love's sake. Amen. Book of Common Prayers p. 134

Dear Reverendmother,

Advent, the season of hope, of anticipation, of expectation, is such an appropriate time to await the birth of your new daughter. May God keep watch with you as you wait, may the angels surround you as you labor and bring forth this precious new person to meet the world, and may your lives be richly blessed as your family grows in love together.
