OLD IRISH PROVERB

May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of his hand

I'm writing this from memory so I hope I wrote it down correctly.

May the sun shine warm upon your face
May the rain fall softly on your fields

My fav. Irish prose:

May those who love us love us.
And those that don't love us,
May God turn their hearts.
And if He doesn't turn their hearts,
May he turn their ankles,
So we'll know them by their limping!

May the winds of fortune sail you,
May you sail a gentle sea.
May it always be the other guy
who says, "this drink's on me."

May you be a half an hour in heaven before the devil knows your dead.

Thank you Suzer. I knew something was missing but I couldn't remember those two lines.

I sang a version of this in 9th grade (only about 30 years ago!) but I've never forgotten it, it's such a beautiful thought.

I like that,the one i go by is.
The man takes a drink.
The drink takes a drink.
Then the drinks take the man.

O believe the Being in heaven comes from a different 'blessing' - I think the two are -

May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.

and

May your glass be ever full.
May the roof over your head be always strong.
And may you be in heaven half an hour before the devil knows you’re dead.
