A tender, gentle setting of a prayer text by David Adam from "Tides and Seasons." SATB and organ. Also available for unison voices.
Father bless me to the dawn,
Bless to me the coming morn,
Bless all that my eyes will see,
Bless all that would come to me,
Bless my neighbor and my friend,
Bless until our journey's end.
Father, bless to me the night,
Silver moon and stars of light,
Golden sun and running wave,
Bless all that your hands have made,
All creation sings your praise,
Bless O Lord this day of days.
Bless the traveller to our shore;
Bless the stranger at our door;
Bless to me the opening year;
Bless all who to me are dear.
Bless, O Lord, this day of days;
Bless with riches all our ways.
