Lyrics
May love and laughter light your days,
And warm your heart and home,
May good and faithful friends be yours,
Wherever you may roam.

May peace and plenty bless your world,
With joy that long endures,
May all life's passing seasons
Bring the best to you and yours.

Pretty song...
...sung with such warmth and genuine sincerity. The drift off into harmony with just vocalization is quite a beautiful instrumental bridge and works extremely well to not only elongate the song, but to also provide a peaceful interlude before repeating these gentle and hopeful lyrics. Musically, this is a peace that could easily fit in a wedding ceremony as well as other occasions where wishes for future happiness are on the agenda. You sing with such purity of sound and have such a pleasant-sounding voice, and you've accompanied this with such simplicity...as it should be. A beautiful song.

Lovely
A true Mysti song, much enjoyed as always.

Just out of curiosity from a non-native speaker...: The rolling R in "frrriends" sounds very Irish/Gaelic to my ears, but there are other rs in the lyrics that are pronounced differently and perhaps not so Irish. Any ideas/comments on that?

Anyway, big thanks, good to hear a new one from you!

Take care,
Henke

Blessed are we who hear
I heard this first on SoundCloud and it is just as entrancing here (coincidence? :) ) Seriously, your ethereal folk style is lovely - a kind of dreamy place that harkens back to former times and at the same time is entrancing the listener right now.

Beautiful post!
