May the God of our eternal hope,
fill you with endless joy and peace
may you find your true happiness
for He is right within your reach.
May His joy descend all around you,
like a beam falling from the sun
may you be bathed in the serenity
from the light of His begotten Son.
May His hope fill you to the brim,
with everlasting gladness and delight
may you join paradise's jubilation
and celebrate His holy sacred sight.
May you know the calm of peace,
and the abounding sense of bliss
may you give your heart to Jesus
so heaven you won't miss.
May He fill you with His strength,
and with the Holy Spirit's power
may you come to know the truth
and accept His love for you this hour!
"Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy
and peace in believing, that you may abound
in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit"
