Traditional Irish Blessings

May there always be work for your hands to do.

May your purse always hold a coin or two.

May the sun always shine upon your window pane.

May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.

May the hand of a friend always be near to you and

May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.


May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be ever at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

And the rain fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again,

May God hold you,

May God hold you,

Until we meet again.
