Irish & Celtic Blessings

  Celtic Blessing
May you both be blessed
  with the strength of heaven,
The light of the sun and the 
   radiance of the moon
 The splendor of fire,
The speed of lightning,
The swiftness of wind,
The depth of the sea,
The stability of earth,
And the firmness of rock. 

Irish Blessing 
May the blessing of light,
Be with you always,
Light without and light within.
And may the sun shine
Upon you and warm your heart
Until it glows
Like a great fire
So that other may feel
The Warmth of your love
For one another. 

(Most Famous) Irish Blessing 
May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
The rain fall soft upon your fields.
And, until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand. 

Irish Marriage Blessing
May God be with you and bless you.
May you see your children's children.
May you be poor in misfortunes
  and rich in blessings.
May you know nothing but 
happiness from this day forward. 

Irish Blessing
May your neighbors respect you, trouble neglect you, 
the angels protect you,
and heaven accept you.  May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.  
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.

Wishing you always walls for the wind,
A roof for the rain,
Tea beside the fire,
And the love and laughter of those you hold dear.

Quick to make friends,
But rich or poor, quick or slow,

  Contentment latch y our door;

      and bless you evermore.

a full moon on a dark night,
and a smooth road all the way to your door.
