This blessing, sometimes known as the Aaronic Blessing, is most commonly sung at Christenings. The words were given to Moses by God for Aaron and his priests to use when blessing the people.

The following are the lyrics to this recording:

The Lord bless thee and keep thee
The Lord make his face to shine upon thee
And be gracious unto thee
The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee
And give thee peace.


This lullaby comes from 'Kist o Dreams', a CD designed to encourage the carers of young children to sing to them. The lullabies were chosen by Christina Stewart either because she particularly liked them as a child or because they worked well with her own children.

Christina Stewart was born in Inverness and studied traditional song as part of her University degree. The versions of the lullabies on the CD are the ones she sings but most have many other versions
