Cherokee Blessing

Cherokee Prayer Blessing

May the Warm Winds of Heaven
Blow softly upon your house.
May the Great Spirit
Bless all who enter there.
May your Mocassins
Make happy tracks
in many snows,
and may the Rainbow
Always touch your shoulder.

Beautiful Celtic Blessing

A Celtic Blessing 

May the light of your soul guide you. 
May the light of your soul bless the work that you do 
with the secret love and warmth of your heart. 
May you see in what you do the beauty of your own soul. 
May the sacredness of your work bring healing, light 
and renewal to those who work with you 
and to those who see and receive your work. 
May your work never weary you. 
May it release within you wellsprings of 
refreshment, inspiration and excitement. 
May you be present in what you do. 
May you never become lost in bland absences. 
May the day never burden. 
May dawn find you awake and alert, 
approaching your new day with dreams, possibilities and promises. 
May evening find you gracious and fulfilled. 
May you go into the night blessed, sheltered and protected. 
May your soul calm, console and renew you.

Benediction ~ Poem by Tagore

Benediction

Bless this little heart, this white soul that has
won the kiss of heaven for our earth.

He loves the light of the sun,
he loves the sight of his mother’s face.

He has not learned to despise the dust,
and to hanker after gold.

Clasp him to your heart and bless him.
He has come into this land of an hundred crossroads.

I know not how he chose you from the crowd,
came to your door, and grasped your hand
to ask his way.

He will follow you, laughing and talking,
and not a doubt in his heart.

Keep his trust, lead him straight and bless him

Lay your hand on his head, and pray
that though the waves underneath grow threatening,
yet the breath from above may come and
fill his sails and
waft him to the heaven of peace.

– Rabindranath Tagore

Poem by John Greenleaf Whittier

“Through the harsh noises of our day
A low sweet prelude finds its way:
Through clouds of doubt and creeds of fear
A light is breaking, calm and clear.

Henceforth my heart shall sigh no more
For olden time and holier shore:
God’s love and blessing, then and there
Are now and here and everywhere.”

John Greenleaf Whittier

A Poetic Irish Blessing

Irish Blessing

May the road rise up 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.
