You are the Peace

(celtic oral tradition – 1st millennium)

You are the peace of all things calm
You are the place to hide from harm
You are the light that shines in dark
You are the heart’s eternal spark
You are the door that’s open wide
You are the guest who waits inside
You are the stranger at the door
You are the calling of the poor
You are my Lord and with me still
You are my love, keep me from ill
You are the light, the truth, the way
You are my Saviour this very day.

Facing East I send my prayers away, away
East sky enlighten me I pray, I pray
East a place for peace
Lifelight anew you rise up
Spotted eagle I welcome you
And give thanks for visions
of peace, of peace

Facing South I send my prayers away, away
South sky for innocence I pray, I pray
South the peak of life
Gifts of new Horizons
Golden eagle I welcome you
And give thanks to work
in peace, in peace

Facing West I send my prayers away, away
West sky to strengthen me I pray, I pray
West the place sun goes down
Sacred and of ancient
Now Bald Eagle I welcome you
And give thanks for journeys
in peace, in peace

Facing North I send my prayers away, away
North sky for purity I pray, I pray
North the place of courage
Wisdom and of knowing
Oh White Eagle I welcome you
And give thanks for healers
in peace, in peace

Mother Earth I send you my prayers
Father Sky I send you my prayers
Oh Great Mystery I feel your breath in my mouth
Oh Great Mystery I welcome you
And give thanks for you in me
In peace, In peace , In peace

Who Closes My Eyes: A Blessing At Bedtime

(From http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jewish-bedtime-prayers)

Praised are You, Adonai, our God, Ruler of the universe, who closes my eyes in sleep, my eyelids in slumber.

May it be Your will, Adonai, My God and the God of my ancestors, to lie me down in peace and then to raise me up in peace.

Let no disturbing thoughts upset me, no evil dreams nor troubling fantasies.

May my bed be complete and whole in Your sight.

Grant me light so that I do not sleep the sleep of death, for it is You who illumines and enlightens.

Praised are You, Adonai, whose majesty gives light to the universe.

Protection and Guidance

Protection and guidance
is what I call forth
to heal our planet,
to heal our hearts.

Peace is descending
into our lives,
and all who are willing
will live in peace again.
Joy is descending
into our lives,
and all who are willing
will laugh again.

In Peace and Beauty

(Lisa Thiel)

In peace and beauty may I walk
In peace and beauty wander the heavens
In peace and beauty may I walk
In peace and beauty wander the Earth

In peace, in peace, may I wander
with beauty, beauty, may I wander
In peace, in peace, may I wander
with beauty, beauty, may I wander
