I arise today

by John O'Donohue


Original Language English

I arise today

Blessed by all things,
Wings of breath,
Delight of eyes,
Wonder of whisper,
Intimacy of touch,
Eternity of soul,
Urgency of thought,
Miracle of health,
Embrace of God.

May I live this day.

-- from Eternal Echoes: Celtic Reflections on Our Yearning to Belong, by John O'Donohue
