Candle of Christmas
May peace and plenty be the first,
To lift the latch to your door.
And happiness be guided to your home,
By the candle of Christmas.
May you have warm words on a cold evening,
a full moon on a dark night,
and the road downhill all the way to your door.
May Your Troubles Be Less
May your troubles be less,
And your blessing be more.
And nothing but happiness,
Come through your door.
May God Grant You
May God grant you always
A sunbeam to warm you,
A moonbeam to charm you,
A sheltering angel, so nothing can harm you.
Heaven Accept You
May your neighbors respect you,
Trouble neglect you,
The angels protect you,
And heaven accept you.
Blessing of Light
May the blessing of light be upon you,
Light on the outside,
Light on the inside.
With God’s sunlight shining on you,
May your heart glow with warmth,
Like a turf fire
That welcomes friends and strangers alike.
May the light of the Lord shine from your eyes,
Like a candle in the window,
Welcoming the weary traveler.
Blessing of God
May the blessing of God’s soft rain be on you,
Falling gently on your head, refreshing your soul
With the sweetness of little flowers newly blooming.
May the strength of the winds of Heaven bless you,
Carrying the rain to wash your spirit clean
Sparkling after in the sunlight.
May the blessing of God’s earth be on you,
And as you walk the roads,
May you always have a kind word
for those you meet.
He Who Loses
He who loses money, loses much;
He who loses a friend, loses more;
He who loses faith, loses all.
Whenever there is Happiness
Whenever there is happiness
Hope you’ll be there too,
Wherever there are friendly smiles
Hope they’ll smile on you,
Whenever there is sunshine,
Hope it shine especially for you to make each day
for you as bright as it can be.
Petal on a Shamrock
For each petal on the shamrock.
This brings a wish your way
Good health, good luck, and happiness
For today and every day.
Irish Blessings in Your Heart

A world of wishes at your command.
God and his angels close to hand.
Friends and family their love impart,
and Irish blessings in your heart!
