May the road rise up to meet you
may the wind be always 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 in the palm of his hand.
May you have: a world of wishes at your command.
God and his angels close at hand. Friends and family their love
to impart, and Irish blessing deep in your heart!
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.
May you have warm words on a cool evening, a full moon
on a dark night, and the road downhill all the way to your door.
May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light,
and may good luck pursue you each morning and night.
May your blessings outnumber the Shamrocks that grow,
and may trouble avoid you wherever you go.
