May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face
The rains fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.
Deep peace of the running wave to you
Deep peace fo 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 Son of peace to you
On our heads and on our house
the blessing of God
In our coming and going
the peace of God.
In our life and believing
the love of God.
At our end and new beginning
the arms of God to welcomd us
and bring us home.
