I have been searching for a 'sampler-type' counted cross stitch my daughter once did for her home. She no longer has the kit she used but sent me the verse that appears on the piece. I am not counted cross stitch savy so can't reconstruct it. The verse is as follows:
God bless the corners of this house
and all the lintels bless,
And bless the hearth
and bless the board and bless each place of rest,
And bless each door that opens wide
to strangers as to kin, And bless the rooftree overhead
and every sturdy wall.
The peace of man
The peace of God
With peace and love for all.
