Words and Music by Tom Paxton

Life - May yours be long and loving.
Peace - May you enjoy its blessing.
Joy - May it be yours to savour.
Love - May it be yours forever.

May the sound of children be your music.
May your blessings be the ones you earn.
May your days be filled with sun.
May you deeply love someone.
May that someone love you in return.


May your only sorrows be the small ones.
May they leave you stronger when they go.
May the love of friends be yours.
May you live with open doors.
May you feel the love within you grow.


May your smallest moment be a full one.
May your life be all that it can be.
May you come to love yourself,
And hold that love above yourself,
And hold that love for all the world to see.
