An African Blessing For Easter - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich
May the Lord bless you.
May he fill your feet with dance
and your arms with strength.
Bless your heart with tenderness
and your eyes with laughter.
Your ears with music
and your nose with pleasant fragrances.
Seal your mouth with joy
and your heart with jubilation.
May he continue to give you
the mercy of the desert,
silence and the freshness of water,
above all new hope.
For us all, he would give
his strength and high hopes,
as a face for it all.
May the Lord let you hear
in the silence of night,
his own blessings to grow
be your destiny's guide.
