for SATB Chorus & Piano
Traditional Irish Blessing
Published with Beckenhorst Press
In this ethereal setting of a traditional Irish blessing, voices and piano hint at Celtic musical elements with a melody that ascends and descends over the Irish hillside, as flecks of Celtic rhythms delicately grace the scene. As the piece gradually builds, the voices swell together and offer comfort in a time of uncertainty.
May you see God’s light on the path ahead
when the road you walk it dark.
May you always hear even in your hour of sorrow,
the gentle singing of the lark.
When times are hard
may hardness never turn your heart to stone.
May you always remember when the shadows fall–
You do not walk alone.
