Deep Peace

for SATB Chorus, Piano, and optional String Quartet

Traditional Irish Blessing

Published with Elaine Hagenberg Music

Deep Peace Hagenberg

Beautifully capturing the essence of this traditional Gaelic blessing, Elaine Hagenberg’s setting evokes the natural tranquility of a “gentle night” where the “moon and stars pour their healing light on you.” The gently flowing piano accompaniment supports the rolling legato vocal lines. Optional string quartet parts add serenity and depth to this well loved text. 

Ocean

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.
