Peace

There was a period of two or three years when this song was very important to me, especially when I had been laid off and the future was more uncertain than I am accustomed to. I listened to it again a few days ago and realized that it's not nearly as good as it seemed to me then, but that's okay, I still enjoy it.

May peace be with you
May love watch over you
May God always be on your side
May his unfailing love
Be granted you from above
May God supply you with
The things you need
To exceed your wildest dreams
I can see His light is shining down on you

May his unfailing love
Be granted you from above
May God supply you with
The things you need
To exceed your wildest dreams
I can see His hand is on your shoulder
He is near just close your eyes and feel it
Give away the pride that leads you nowhere
And receive
His Love

May peace be with you
May love watch over you
May God always be on your side

From: Anita Parker

With words and music by Swedish composer Andreas Sandlund, this lovely song is rather like a blessing: "May peace be with you, may love watch over you, may God always be on your side."
