Father's Blessing for a Child Leaving the Family Home

I stand here as your father, in the place of the Father of All,
as you prepare to move away and start your own household.
Though you may live in another house, still the gods will protect you.
Though you may join your life to another's family, still will the Ancestors guide you.
Though you may travel in strange lands, still will the spirits there welcome you.
For my father's blessing is not for your ears alone:
the numinous beings hear, and they will honor it.
