This famous consoling poem has had many settings by composers over the last 100 years. Susan has written a very compelling melody with a lilting piano accompaniment. It goes straight to the heart. Suitable for treble choirs at age, this piece would make a touching closer to any concert.
May the road rise up to greet you
and the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face
and the rain fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again
may God hold you
in the palm of His hand
