May the blessing of joy abide in you,
and your delight in the Lord be for real
may the happiness that dwells inside you
bring others to know God’s perfect will.
May the blessing of peace rest upon you,
and your calm a witness to your belief
may those you greet see the Spirit’s stillness
so they too, will want God’s eternal relief.
May the blessing of love flow through you,
and your adoration for God shine bright
may the praise you have, be heard by all
so they too, can know of God’s saving light.
May the blessing of eternal hope fill you,
and your message of faith be loud and clear
may the truth that lives in your heart
bring others to see their Savior is here.
May the joy, peace, and love of God,
and the hope of the season . . .
be what you share and give to others
in this age of reason!
King James Version
“Now the God of hope fill you
with all joy and peace in believing,
that ye may abound in hope,
through the power of the Holy Ghost.”
Deborah Ann Belka
