That you keep in your heart with gratitude the precious memory of the good things of life
May the roads open to your encounter,
may the sun shine on your face,
may the rain fall softly on your fields,
may the wind always blow at your back.
That you keep in your heart with gratitude
the precious memory
of the good things of life.
May every gift of God grow in you
and help you bring joy
to the hearts of all you love.
Let your eyes reflect a brightness of friendship,
funny and generous as the sun,
which comes out from the clouds
and warms the calm sea.
May the strength of God keep you firm,
may the eyes of God look upon you,
may the ears of God hear you,
may the Word of God speak to you,
may the hand of God protect you,
and that, until we meet again,
another has you, and has us all,
in the palm of your hand.
