Be Thou, O Lord, their guide upon their way, their support in labour, their consolation in sorrow, their strength in temptation. Keep them loyal to their Faith, free from sin, and faithful to all their family ties.
Grant that, when this life's journey is ended, we may all be united in the blessedness of our heavenily home. Amen.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, protect our emigrants.
