Irish Blessing

May the blessing of light be upon you
Light on the outside and light on the inside
With God's sunlight shining on you,
May your heart glow with warmth like a turf fire
That welcomes friends and strangers alike.

May the light of the Lord shine from your eyes
like a candle in the window,
welcoming the weary traveler.

May the blessing of God's soft rain be on you
Falling gently on your head
refreshing your soul with the sweetness
of little flowers newly blooming

May the strength of the winds
of heaven bless you,
carrying the rain to wash your spirit clean
sparkling after, in the sunlight

May the blessing of God's earth be on you
and as you walk the roads, may you always
have a kind word for those you meet.

May you understand the strength and power
of God in a thunderstorm in winter,
the quiet beauty of creation
and the calm of a summer sunset.

And may you come to realize that insignificant
as you may seem in this great universe,
you are an important part of God's plan
May He watch over you
and keep you safe from harm.
