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.
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.
light without and light within.
May the blessed sunlight shine on you
and warm your heart
till it glows like a great peat fire.
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!
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!
Loyal, willing and able.
Now let’s get to drinking!
All glasses off the table!
You’re lucky enough!
Your heart be light,
And may good luck pursue you
Each morning and night
To spread luck along your way,
And may all the Irish angels
Smile upon you on St. Patrick’s Day
Lead to happiest heights,
And the highway you travel
Be lined with green lights.
Sing as if no one were listening,
And live every day as if it were your last.
Than the happiest day of your past.
The wife of your choice to you.
A child every year to you,
And life without rent to you.
And may you be half an hour in heaven
Before the devil knows your dead.
A full moon on a dark night,
And the road downhill all the way to your door.
May your smile be big and wide,
And may your pockets always have
a coin or two inside!
One has just entered my head.
If a man doesn't drink when he's living,
How in the hell can he drink when he's dead?
A quick death and an easy one
A pretty girl and an honest one
A cold beer – and another one!
