Irish Blessing


May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your skin
and the rains fall soft upon your fields.
May God hold you in the hollow of his hand.


May you both be blessed with the strength of heaven
The light of the sun and the radianceof the moon
The splendour of fire
The speed of lightning
The swiftness of wind
The depth of the sea
The stability of earth
And the firmness of rock.
