(revised and enlarged edition)

In this introduction to songs and blessings collected from the oral tradition of the Hebrides, Esther de Waal uses the poems themselves to evoke a vision of the wholeness of life. We are seen to belong to a common creation, responsible for the natural world but essentially at peace with it; secure in the knowledge that wherever we go we are under God’s heaven, and that God can be found close at hand, under our very roofs. We are encouraged to make some of the prayers included here our own, to find ourselves befriended by God and the saints as we talk to them with unforced simplicity and candour. So we discover that ‘it is through the rites of ordinariness that the rhythm of eternity penetrates’ our days and nights.
