lyrics


May The Road Rise Up To Meet You

May the road rise up to meet you
And the wind be on your back
May the sun shine warm upon you
And the rain fall gently down

May God hold you, ever hold you
May God hold you, in the palm of His hand
Gently hold you, come enfold you
May God hold you, in the palm,
The palm of His hand


May the stars come out to greet you
As you lie your head to rest
May the moonlight smile upon you
And your dreams be ever blessed


(based on an ancient celtic blessing)

But what happens when a part of the body becomes so broken that it can no longer function? This is something that we need to Read More
