African blessing

The Lord bless you. He fills your feet with dance and your arms with strength.

He fills your heart with tenderness and your eyes with laughter.

He fills your ears with music and your nose with fragrances.

He fills your mouth with rejoicing and your heart with joy.

He always gives you a new gift, the mercy of the desert:
Silence, fresh water and new hope.

He always empowers us all anew, to give hope a face.  

The Lord bless you.
