I lift up my eyes to the hills... But you cannot lift up your eyes. You cannot even plea with God. But I can for you. God will not let your foot be moved... O God, never abandon this child of yours. Be attentive to her needs And walk with her on this final leg. The Lord is your shade at your right hand... Protect this vulnerable child Now weaken by her years. Give her comfort and serenity. The Lord will keep you from all evil... O God, bless and keep this elder child. Shine upon her and be gracious to her. Look upon her with kindness and give her peace. And release her soul into your Paradise.
