An Irish Blessing

May you always have...
A sunbeam to warm you,
Good luck to charm you,
And a sheltering angel
so nothing can harm you.
Laughter to cheer you,
Faithful friends near you,
And whenever you pray...
Heaven to hear you.

Count your blessings instead of your crosses;
Count your gains instead of your losses.
Count your joys instead of your woes;
Count your friends instead of your foes.
Count your smiles instead of your tears;
Count your courage instead of your fears.
Count your full years instead of your lean;
Count your kind deeds instead of your mean.
Count your health instead of your wealth;
Love your neighbor as much as yourself
.

     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 windowpane;
  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.

Hills as green as emeralds
Cover the countryside
Lakes as blue as sapphires-
And Irelandís special pride
And rivers that shine like silver
Make Ireland look so fair-
But the friendliness of her people
Is the richest treasu
re there.
