- The verb bless comes from Old English bldsian, bldsian, bltsian, "to bless, wish happiness, consecrate." Although the Old English verb has no cognates in any other Germanic language, it can be shown to derive from the Germanic noun *bldan, "blood." Bldsian therefore literally means "to consecrate with blood, sprinkle with blood."
