The blessing of the earth to you may the mountains clap their hands for you may the hills dance around you with delight may the valleys receive the news of your coming as you have come separately and leave together may the earth welcome your footsteps and know the sound of your new presence.
May the water spindle up in joy for you may you drink in the pleasure of your love may the great sea part for you when you share courage and faith may springs refresh and renew you in deep pools of forgiveness may the rain shower you even in summer with its watery blessings
May the fire of earth, the fire under you be also a fire of love in you may you be passionate in love and work and may the flame in you that knows its loneliness always flow to the flame in the other that you might glow together in the dancing love between you
And from the greenness of trees and gardens may the air you breathe give fragrance to the person between you the one that grows from your love that eats and drinks from your tendering the soul that you share together and may it bless you with the children of your desire
So may you breathe and walk with confidence in love and may the gentle whispering God be breathing your life with you.
may the air you breathe give fragrance to the person between you the one that grows from your love that eats and drinks from your tendering the soul that you share together
