House of Bishops

I found this version on beliefnet. Adapted for the HoB.

May the Episcopal House of Bishops arise today
Through the strength of heaven;
Light of the sun,
Splendor of fire,
Swiftness of wind,

Depth of the sea,
Stability of earth,
Firmness of rock.

May these bishops arise today
Through God’s strength to pilot them;
God’s might to uphold them,
God’s wisdom to guide them,
God’s hand to guard them.

Afar and anear,
Alone or in a multitude.

Christ shield them today
Against wounding:

Christ with them,
Christ before them,
Christ behind them,

Christ on their right,
Christ on their left,

Christ beneath them,
Christ above them,
Christ in them.

May the Episcopal House of Bishops arise today
Through the mighty strength
Of the Lord of Creation.
