BLESSING

May he be like an olive plant
          Adorning your table;
May he be like a stock,
          Which the Lord's right hand planted,
And a young plant,
          Which the Lord made strong for Himself.
Like a tree by brooks of water,
          Which gives its fruit in season
Whose leaf fadeth not
           May all that he does prosper.
May he (if the Lord has not come)
          Planted in the house of the Lord,
Flourish in the courts of our God,
          Full of sap, and green.

For the birth of Barrie, my friend's son; a prayer happily answered by now.
