Blessing of the Day


Bless this day,
The quiet sounds of morning,
The waking of creation.

Bless this silence, nurture of solitude,
Feeding thirsty spirits,
Filling hearts for another day.

Breathe deeply the quiet,
The early morning sounds,
The softness of the sun.

Breathe deeply the beauty,
The songs of birds,
The dew upon the grass.

Breathe deeply the peace,
Cool wind upon skin,
Gentleness in every step.

Guide me, guide us,
Gently into the day,
May we be blessing to all we meet.
