May you, Lord, be for us a moon of joy and happiness.
Let the young become strong,
and the grown man keep his strength.
Let the pregnant woman be delivered,
and the woman who has given birth suckle her child.
Let the stranger reach the end of his journey,
and those who remain at home
live safely in their houses.
Let the flocks that travel to feed in the pastures return satisfied.
May you, Lord, be a moon of harvest and of calves.
May you be a moon of restoration and of good health.
