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)

Sailing Boat on the oceans

The words in the video below cry “Disturb Us Lord!”. Come disturb us – when we are too safe, too distracted, too caught-up in the now to “dream of eternity”. Yet unlike some of those early Celtic pilgrims we are unlikely to literally sail out in a coracle into the vast unknown! However, at every stage, Read More


Treasure Chest

God’s love is a like a treasure chest in the centre of our lives. It is at the very core of our families, and is the powerhouse of our callings in the world. In Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians there lies an explanation of love that explores the nature of this treasure trove. We Read More
