rich r Songs of Hope/Encouragement (32) Lyr Add: Life (Tom Paxton)^^ 01 May 99

by Tom Paxton

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

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

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.


I think this is one of Tom Paxton's most uplifting songs. How sad that it is not better known and more widely sung.
