I’ve loved this blessing, even when I was familiar with just the first four lines. Then I received a lovely card with a version that spoke of the morning mist and the evening glow, each day and every day, each night and every night, and I fell in love all over again. The melody bubbled up or floated in, the two halves came together, and here it was and is.

Deep peace of the running wave to you,
Deep peace of the flowing air to you,
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you,
Deep peace of the candle flame to you,
Deep peace of the morning mist to you,
Deep peace of the evening star to you,
This day and ev’ry day,
This night and ev’ry night.
