May the road rise up to meet you both
On each and every morn.
May the rains fall soft upon your fields
Of waving yellow corn.
May the wind be always at your back
And the sun's warmth on your face.
And until we meet again my friends,
God keep you in his grace.
May the grains of sand upon the shore
Number all your days.
May the love of God in darkest times
Enlighten all your ways.
May the pipes forever be your soul
And the bodhran beat your heart.
And the jigs and reels your ups and downs
Till life's ceile you depart.
May the rest of life be the best of life
And no one do you wrong.
May children's laughter be your music
Their growing be your song.
And when the time says you must part
As time will always do
May God go with you both my friends
And this blessing stay with you.
