Life can bring about devastating circumstances. No one can predict what will happen from one minute to the next. Navigating this world alone and without God's protection and guidance is a frightening scenario.
In the song ‘An Irish Blessing’ by Celtic Thunder, the guys hope and wish that listeners encounter nothing but the Lord's blessings in life. They also ask that listeners be kept safe in the "gentle loving arms of God."
However, as evidenced by the requests for God's love and protection, the songwriter understands that life is and will be made up of periods of pain, sorrow, joy and happiness. So, the songwriter incorporates very popular passages and ideas from the book of Ecclesiastes.
Inspiration From ‘An Irish Blessing’
In the song's second verse, the lyrics mention that there is a "time for meeting" and a "time to say goodbye." That same verse also reminds us that in every period, God is always close and ultimately, He is the One guiding our path in life.
In a later verse from ‘An Irish Blessing,’ the songwriter acknowledges a hard, but difficult fact of life. Not everything we experience on this earth will be pleasant. Yes, there will be "a time for laughter." There will be fun and joyous occasions, with smiles all around. But there will also be a "time for tears and pain."
Nevertheless, whatever period of life we may be in, no matter what we may be undergoing, the songwriter once again reiterates that God is still working, and He is near. He has not forgotten and if we keep the faith and cling close to Him, He is guiding the way.
Praise God for his faithfulness throughout life's many challenges and storms!
Ecclesiastes 3:1 "To everything, there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven."
