Looking for the full song

the lord let his face shine down upon you
the sun come up to meet you when you rise
the spirit of his love invade the circle of your friends
your life pour out like sweet and good red wine...

I am as well. I know parts of it but not the whole song. In fact I can't even remember the name of it. Though 'A Song of Blessing' comes to mind as the name, but I've searched on the net using those words to no avail.

I, too, would like to remember all the lyrics, but here are the ones I do remember:

The Lord let his face shine down upon you
The sun rise up to meet you every day
The spirit of his love invade the circle of your friends
Your vision keep you changing day by day

Good times be the jingle in your pocket
Life's hearthstone there to warm you when you rise
Forgiving and for growing be the way you know your soul
Your heart be always open to surprise

And time will tell your story
We will listen once again
Your heart will be the ocean
Storing all your footprints in the sand

Okay...then there are a couple more verses that I don't remember, just that the song ends like this:

If death should carve a canyon in between us for a while
Then sing this song for me til I come home.

Maybe someone else can fill in the gaps. I remember singing this about 25 years ago in grade school.

Here are the lyrics from the song

The Lord let his face shine down upon you
The sun rise up to meet you on your way
The spirit of his love invade the circle of your friends
Your vision keep you changing day by day

Good times be the jingle in your pocket
Life's hearthstone there to warm you when you rise
Forgiving and for growing be the way you know your soul
Your heart be always open to surprise

Your life finds all its seasons in the hollow of his hands
his heart will be the ocean storing all your footprints in the sand

Falling down be only london bridges
down and out be only words of rhyme
a Suitcase full of dreams be all that ways your body down
your life pour out like sweet and red good wine

And time will tell your story
and we'll listen once again
Your song will have its moment
Leave a sign on the forehead of a friend

Your rest be peaceful sleep a fond companion
and wonder mark the road you need roam
If death should carve a canyon in between us for a while
then sing this song for me till I come home

The song is named "Song of Blessing" by Joe Wise from his "Take It For Gift" album. EMusic has it on a sample playlist.
