The Irish Wedding Blessing
May the Lord rise to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back
May the sun shine upon your face,
The rain fall soft upon the fields.
May the light of friendship guide your paths together.
May the laughter of children grace the halls of your home.
May the joy of living for one another
Trip a smile from your lips, a twinkle from your eye.
And when eternity beckons,
At the end of a life heaped high with love,
May the good Lord embrace you
With the arms that have nurtured you
The whole length of your joy-filled days.
May the gracious God hold you both
In the palm of his hands.
And, today, may the Spirit of Love
Find a dwelling place in your hearts.
What shall I say
