"May the God of the misty dawn waken you,

May the God of the rising sun stir you up,

May the God of morning sky send you on your way,

May the God of noon-day stillness renew your strength,

May the God of afternoon bring you home,

May the God of sunset delight your eye,

May the God of twilight calm your nerves,

And may the God of dusk bring you peace.

And may God bless you,

The rising and the setting sun,

The Alpha and the Omega,

The Beginning and the end,

Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


Fr. Andrew Greeley

The Irish, p. 27
