Three Marriage Blessings

A Wedding Blessing 1

 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.

Bob Commin




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
