Digital download: Seven blessings for a wedding or partnership, with each stanza one line longer than the previous. Includes an introduction.
Blessed is this earth beneath our feet,
Spinning rock of light in endless sky.
Every life seeking peace, every day till we die.
Blessed are those lives we no longer see.
The ones who were with us and still never leave.
Blessed is the love that holds us together
To have and to hold, for ever and ever.
