Blessings & Toasts
blessing, circa 1150 A.D., from North Jutland, Denmark:
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 the Light of the World to you.
(Thanks to Vivian Humphrey)
"May the road rise up
to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back,
The sun shine warm upon your face.
The rain fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the hollow if His hand."
"May you be in Heaven half an hour before the devil knows you're dead"
