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 traveler.

 

May the blessing of God's soft rain be on you,

falling gently on your head

refreshing your soul

with the sweetness of little 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

 

 

 

The song you hear playing is Roma Downey
singing An Irish Blessing in Gaelic
