An Irish Christmas Blessing


One of my favorite Christmas traditions at Christmas is a symphony or concert.  When we lived in Xalapa, Mexico, we made the University of Veracruz Symphony Orchestra an annual team tradition.

This past year, my wife and I enjoyed Keith and Kristyn Getty’s, Joy: An Irish Christmas at the Bob Carr Theater in downtown Orlando. Have you ever sung some of your favorite Christmas choruses with an Irish accent?

To say Merry Christmas and thank you for following and reading my blog, I leave you with Keith and Kristyn’s song, 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


Here is a taste of the concert:

What is your favorite Christmas tradition?
