Irish Blessings


An Irish Prayer 
May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.



An Old Irish Blessing
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.


















A Wish for a Friend
Wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers-
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours-
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through!

  2. The colorful paper chain rainbow and shamrock rainbow are bursts of fun! And it's always fun to find a 4 leaf clover :o)

    Thank you also for sharing the Irish Prayer and the wishes. I know of the Old Irish Blessing, but think the other two are ones I had not heard.

    Blessings & Aloha!
