The Blessing: Words of Wisdom with Delores Banks-Butler

Welcome to another week, and another edition of Words of Wisdom with Delores Banks-Butler. Enjoy a new curated song on this very snowy wintry Monday afternoon. Delores’ original poetry and selected poems and songs are inspired by her love of her family and community in Louisville’s West End, as well as her strong Christian faith.


From Delores: May the words of this song by Elevation Worship bring peace and joy into your heart today.

Title:  The Blessing


The Lord bless you

And keep you

May His face shine upon you

Be gracious to you


The Lord turn His 

Face toward you

And give you peace


May His favor be upon you

And a thousand generations

And your family and your children

And their children, and their children


May His presence go before you

And behind you, and beside you

All around you, and within you

He is with you

Yes He is with you
