Ten Christmas Hymns: Irish Christmas Blessing

Today's hymn comes from modern hymn writers Keith and Kristyn Getty. You can read the lyrics and download the recording here: http://www.gettymusic.com/USA-albums.aspx?id=851 This comes from their Christmas album, which I highly recommend you add to your Christmas collection!

An Irish Christmas Blessing

Now may the fragrance of His peace
Soar through your heart like the dove released
Hide in His wings oh, weary distant soul
He'll guide your spirit home

And may His love poured from on high
Flow to the depths of your deepest sigh
Oh come and drink from the only living stream
And on His shoulder lean

And may the hope that will not deceive
Through every pain bring eternal ease
There is no night that can steal the promises
His coming brings to us

So may His joy rush over you
Delight in the path He has called you to
May all your steps walk in Heaven's endless light
Beyond this Christmas night

Keith Getty and Kristyn Getty
