Blessing Of A Bridge

V. Our help is in the name of the Lord.
R. Who has made heaven and earth.

V. The Lord be with you.
R. And with your spirit.

Let us pray.

Hear our prayers, Lord,
and be so kind as to bless this bridge,
and all who pass over it,
that in the successes as well as the failures of this world
they may always be protected by Your assistance,
through Christ our Lord.

R. Amen.

Let us pray.

Hear us, holy Lord, Father almighty, eternal God,
and be so kind as to send your holy angel
from heaven to guard, visit, and defend this bridge,
and all who pass over it, through Christ our Lord.

R. Amen.
