The lyrics for this work expand upon the familiar Irish Blessing, with several new stanzas offering a wish for peace, joy, hope and love. This arrangement includes a hint of gospel-style choral writing, and features Celtic-flavored instrumental parts.
May the road rise to meet you
may the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warmly upon your face
and the light of heaven guide your path.
When the world begins to tremble
when the sand shifts below your feet
may you stand firm on a solid rock
May you find tranquility and peace.
May the joy of hope enfold you
and laughter grace your home
May you know the heights of human love
May your life reflect the love you’ve known
