An Irish Blessing: This Blessing is for You.

By Luphil

A friend sent me the link to an online presentation with sublime pictures of Ireland, subtle music and “An Irish Blessing: This Blessing Is For You“. You can download the music by Roma Downey with the text by Phil Coulter as an MP3-file from the following website.
And you find the text of the beautiful blessing also below – I googled and found it. In Ireland there is the St. Patricks Festival celebrated from 16 – 20 March (it’s on 17 March).

An Irish Blessing

May the blessing of light be upon you,
Light on the outside, Light on the inside.
With God’s sunlight shining on you,
May your heart glow with warmth,
Like a turf fire that welcomes friends and strangers alike.
May the light of the Lord shine from your eyes,
Like a candle in the window,
Welcoming the weary traveller.

May the blessing of God’s soft rain be on you,
Falling gently on your head, refreshing your soul
With the sweetness of litte flowers newly blooming.
May the strength of the winds of Heaven bless you,
Carrying the rain to wash your spirit clean
Sparkling after in the sunlight.
May the blessing of God’s earth be on you,
And as you walk the roads,
May you always have a kind word for those you meet.

May you understand the strength and power of God.
In a thunderstorm in Winter, And the quiet beauty of creation,
In the calm of a Summer sunset, And may you come to realize,
that, insignificant as you may seem in this great Universe,
You are an important part of God’s plan.

May “HE” watch over you and keep you safe from harm.

An Irish Blessing: This Blessing is for you.
