Irish Blessings

Recommended Posts

We are having a close friend read an Irish Blessing during the wedding. Anyone have any that they want to share? Below is one that I've found and like.

 

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 the fields.

 

May the light of friendship guide your paths together.

May the laughter of children grace the halls

of your home.

May the joy of living for one another trip a smile

from your lips,

A twinkle from your eye.

 

And when eternity beckons,

at the end of a life heaped high with love,

May the good Lord embrace you

with the arms that have nurtured you

the whole length of your joy-filled days.

May the gracious God hold you both

in the palm of His hands.

 

And, today, may the Spirit of Love

find a dwelling place in your hearts.

 

Amen.

I am having Mike's sister read the Irish Wedding Song. One of my friends always sings it at our friends weddings, but unfortunately she's not coming to our wedding, so I hope it sounds as nice being read. (Sorry it's in all caps, I copied it from a site):

 

THERE THEY STAND HAND IN HAND, AND EXCHANGE WEDDING BANDS.

TODAY IS THE DAY OF ALL THEIR DREAMS AND PLANS.

AND ALL OF THERE LOVED ONES ARE HERE TO SAY

GOD BLESS THIS COUPLE WHO MARRY TODAY

 

IN GOOD TIMES AND BAD TIMES, IN SICKNESS AND HEALTH

MAY THEY KNOW THAT RICHES ARE NOT NEEDED FOR WEALTH

HAVE THEM FACE PROBLEMS THEY'LL MEET ON THEIR WAY

GOD BLESS THIS COUPLE WHO MARRY TODAY

 

MAY THEY FIND PEACE OF MIND, COMES TO ALL WHO ARE KIND

MAY THE ROUGH TIMES AHEAD, BECOME TRIUMPHS IN TIME

MAY THEIR CHILDREN BE HAPPY EACH DAY

GOD BLESS THIS FAMILY WHO STARTED TODAY

 

IN GOOD TIMES AND BAD TIMES, IN SICKNESS AND HEALTH

MAY THEY KNOW THAT RICHES ARE NOT NEEDED FOR WEALTH

HAVE THEM FACE PROBLEMS THEY'LL MEET ON THERE WAY

GOD BLESS THIS COUPLE WHO MARRY TODAY

 

AS THEY GO, MAY THEY KNOW EVERY LOVE THAT WILL SHOW

AND AS LIFE GETS SHORTER, MAY THEIR FEELINGS GROW

WHEREVER THEY TRAVEL, WHEREVER THEY STAY

GOD BLESS THIS COUPLE WHO MARRY TODAY

IN GOOD TIMES AND BAD TIMES, IN SICKNESS AND HEALTH

MAY THEY KNOW THAT RICHES ARE NOT NEEDED FOR WEALTH

HAVE THEM FACE PROBLEMS THEY'LL MEET ON THEIR WAY

GOD BLESS THIS COUPLE WHO MARRY TODAY

GOD BLESS THIS COUPLE WHO MARRY TODAY

This is the one that we will be using:

 

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 palm of his hand.

May God be with you and bless you;

May you see your children’s children.

May you be poor if misfortune,

Rich in blessings,

May you know nothing but happiness

From this day forward.

May the road rise to meet you

May the wind be always at your back

May the warm rays of sun fall upon your harm

And may the hand of a friend always be near.

May green be the grass you walk on,

May blue be the skies above you,

May pure be the joys that surround you,

May true be the hearts that love you.

May the raindrops fall lightly on your brow

May the soft winds freshen your spirit

May the sunshine brighten your heart

May the burdens of the day rest lightly upon you

And may God enfold you in the mantle of His love.

 

May the road rise to meet you

May the wind be always at your back

May the sun shine warm upon your face

and the rain fall soft upon your fields

And until we meet again my friend

May God hold you in the hollow (palm) of his hand

 

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

 

But rich or poor, quick or slow,

May you know nothing but happiness

From this day forward.

May the joys of today

Be those of tomorrow.

 

---

 

May your mornings bring joy and your evenings bring peace.

May your troubles grow few as your blessings increase.

May the saddest day of your future

Be no worse than the happiest day of your past.

May your hands be forever clasped in friendship

And your hearts joined forever in love.

Your lives are very special,

God has touched you in many ways.

May his blessings rest upon you

And fill all your coming days.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
