~May your day be touched
By a bit if IRISH LUCK,
Brightened by a song in your heart,
And warmed by the smiles
Of the people you LOVE.~
~May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
And rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.~
~May good luck be with you
Wherever you go,
And your blessings outnumber
The shamrocks that grow.~
~May your days be many and your troubles be few,
May all God's blessings descend upon you,
May peace be within you,
May your heart be strong,
May you find what you're seeking
Wherever you roam.~
~May you have the hindsight to know where you've been,
The foresight to know where you're going,
And the insight to know when you're going too far.~
~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 lilt of Irish laughter lighten every load,
May the mist of Irish magic shorten every road,
May you taste the sweetest pleasures that fortune ere bestowed,
And may all your friends remember all the favors you are owed.~
~May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.~
~Here's to a long life and a merry one,
A quick death and an easy one,
A pretty girl and an honest one,
A cold beer and another one!~
HAPPY SAINT PATRICK'S DAY!
