Irish Blessings

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.

May the sun shine, all day long,
everything go right, and nothing wrong.
May those you love bring love back to you,
and may all the wishes you wish come true!

May you always walk in sunshine.
May you never want for more.
May Irish angels rest their wings right beside your door.

May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light.
May good luck pursue you each morning and night.

May joy and peace surround you,
Contentment latch your door,
And happiness be with you now,
And bless you evermore.

May the wings of the butterly kiss the sun.
And find your shoulder to light on.
To bring you luck, happiness and riches.
Today, tomorrow and beyond.
