The Irish Blessing – Some Comforting Words (Video)

The Irish Blessing is a song that has comforted me since learning it for my high school show choir. It’s quite beautiful in four-part a cappella harmony, though I can’t recall who did the arrangement. Alas, I am only one person, but as a soprano, I did get the melody. The recording is unpolished. I considered redoing it because my voice got shaky. I’m leaving it. I’m not emotionless today, and neither is anyone else.

Here are the lyrics:

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 rain fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again
And until we meet again
May the God who loves us all
Hold you in the palm of His hand

That’s me: Christina Gleason. I’m a professional copywriter, editor, and blogger. My company is called Phenomenal Content. (Hire me!) I’m a relatively high-functioning Aspie who also lives with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), depression, anxiety, and chronic pain. I am not ashamed to admit that I am in the care of a psychiatrist, who assures me that people in therapy are often better adjusted than “normal” people who are not, because at least we know what our issues are and are working on them. I’m a geek for grammar, fantasy, and select types of gaming, including World of Warcraft and Plants vs Zombies 2. I hate vegetables. I have an intense phone phobia, so I’ll happily conduct business over email or IM instead. I have started writing no fewer than five novels, and I hope to finish one of them...eventually.
