Written during the Covid lockdown in 2020, An Irish Blessing is a beautiful original tune from the pen of Craig Stevens set to the following words:
May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
Though the rain falls on your fields
And the flowers grow no more,
May the Lord keep you safe in His hands
Until we meet again.
Traditional Irish Blessing (paraphrased)
The composer writes: ‘The hope, that despite the uncertainty of the times, that we would meet again.’
