May The Blessing of Light

May the blessing of light be on you,
 light without and light within.

May the blessed sunlight shine
 upon you and warm your heart 
till it glows like a great peat fire, 
so that the stranger may come 
and warm himself at it, 
as well as the friend.

And may the light shine 
out of the eyes of you,
like a candle set in 
the windows of a house,
bidding the wanderer to
come in out the storm.

And may the blessing of the rain
be on you - the soft sweet rain.
May it fall upon your spirit so that 
all the little flowers may spring up,
and shed their sweetness on the air.

And may the blessing of 
the great rains be on you,
that they beat upon your spirit 
and wash it fair and clean,
and leave there many 
a shining pool where the 
blue of heaven shines, 
and sometimes a star.

And may the blessing 
of the earth be on you - 
the great round earth;
may you ever have a kindly 
greeting for people you pass as
 you are going along the roads.
And now may the Lord bless you,
and bless you kindly.
