deep peace

deep peace of the running wave to you
deep peace of the flowing air to you
deep peace of the quiet earth to you
deep peace of the shining stars to you
deep peace of the gentle night to you
moon and stars pour their healing light on you
deep peace of Christ, the light of the world to you
deep peace of Christ to you

for my family, for my mom

what had been here was a link to a video of a choral group singing a gorgeous rendition of this beautiful gaelic blessing. unfortunately now, six weeks after my mother's death, the video has been removed from the web due to copyright violations. so you - and i - will have to settle for the lyrics alone. i watched the video many times when it was posted, and got some small comfort from it. i'm sorry it's gone.
