An Irish Friendship wish.
May there always be work for your hands to do.
May your purse always hold a coin or two.
May the sun always shine on your window pane;
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you,
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be ever at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
May the rains fall soft upon your fields
And throughout your life,
May God hold you in the hollow of his hands,
And may you be in heaven half an hour before the devil knows you're dead!
