A Blessing for You Today on Your Journey

 A Blessing for You Today on Your Journey

May it be an evening star
Shines down upon you
May it be when darkness falls
Your heart will be true
You walk a lonely road
Oh, how far you are from home

Mornië utúlië (darkness has come)
Believe and you will find your way
Mornië alantië (darkness has fallen)
A promise lives within you now

May it be the shadows call
Will fly away
May it be your journey on
To light the day
When the night is overcome
You may rise to find the sun

Mornië utúlië (darkness has come)
Believe and you will find your way
Mornië alantië (darkness has fallen)
A promise lives within you now
A promise lives within you now

  1. A journey into what addresses our fears as we enter into the midst of PANDEMIC where so much is danger and so much is unseen and we do not know how to go forward.

    So we ‘ask’, and trust for a response to come, like children we trust; and there is something pure and honest about this faith when ‘smugness’ and hubris fall down before the unknown danger and we are in need of help from our Creator once more.

    The Book of Isaiah is opened and there we find these words:

    ““ AND THINE EARS SHALL HEAR A WORD BEHIND THEE, SAYING,
    ‘THIS IS THE WAY,
    WALK IN IT,
    WHEN YE TURN TO THE RIGHT,
    AND WHEN YE TURN TO THE LEFT.’ ”
    (Isaiah 30:21)

    so when the ground of our land trembles beneath our feet and the volcanic mountains explode and the forces that formed our world are again seen,
    can we still sing the hymn of a dying Christian from Iceland who wrote 800 years ago calling out to his Creator God with these words:
    “MAY COME SOFTLY UNTO ME THY MERCY.
    SO I CALL ON THEE, FOR YOU HAVE CREATED ME.”

  2. A beautiful song and blessing during these dark times. Also reminds me of Lord of The Rings movies and books, one of my favorite stories.

  3. Believe and you will find your way

    More than ever I need to hear, again and again, “Even if you can’t believe, you will find your way”….
