September Blessing

May this day’s dawning

bring you:

faith fresh as dew,

love as abounding as the sky,

and hope strong as the rising sun.

May your steps

be directed

in the path of peace,

the way of righteousness

and the leading of holiness.

May your wisdom

and your words

bring gladness to you

and blessing to others

like a cool breeze

on a hot afternoon.

May all that you do

on this good day

glorify him who has made you

and honor him

who has saved you.

May the Lord

bless the work of your hands

and sanctify

the thoughts of your heart.

And then,

under a rising moon

gleaming on a cloudless night,

may you lie down to your rest

grateful and content,

and stronger

in faith,

in hope,

and in love.
