I humbly salute thee,
O thee faithful,
Heavenly Friends of my children!
I give thee heartfelt thanks
for all the love and goodness thou hast shown them.
At some future day I shall,
with thanks more worthy than I can now give, repay your care for them,
and before the whole heavenly court
acknowledge their indebtedness to thy guidance and protection.
Continue to watch over them, I beseech thee and provide for all their needs of body and soul.
Pray, likewise, for me, for my husband,
and my whole family, that we may all one day rejoice in thy blessed company.
