All the Wonders

On These Shores

On these shores

People prayed to the morning sun.

On these shores

People gathered food, repaired nets.

On these shores

People launched and landed coracles,

Placed their hope in the God of travelers.

On these shores

Patrick arrived in slavery,

Escaped with sailors,

Returned as missionary.

On these shores

Columba left his homeland

And entered his exile.

On these shores

People walked and worked,

Laughed and cried,

Sang and prayed.

On these shores, this day,

I walk. I pray.

I thank God for my ancestors,

Pilgrims, travelers,

Faithful ones who came before.

On these shores.
