Irish Blessings

Leftovers from St. Patrick’s Day…but these are not a one day recitation. All year long they are with meaning:

“May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be ever at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the hollow of his hand.”

“May you live as long as you want and never want as long as you live”

“May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day. May songbirds serenade you every step along the way. May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that’s always blue. And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through.”

“May you have warm words on a cold evening, a full moon on a dark night and a smooth road all the way to your door.”

“May God give you…For every storm a rainbow, for every tear a smile, for every care a promise and a blessing in each trial. For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share, for every sigh a sweet song and an answer for each prayer.”

“These things I warmly wish for you Someone to love, some work to do, A bit o’ sun, a bit o’ cheer, And a guardian angel always near”

“May you get to heaven a half hour before the devil knows you’re dead”

“May you always have walls for the winds, a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire, laughter to cheer you, those you love near you and all your heart might desire.”

“Wherever you go and whatever you do, May the luck of the Irish be there with you”

“May good luck be your friend in whatever you do and may trouble be always a stranger to you.”

“Bless your little Irish heart and every other Irish part.”
