If God sends you down a stony path,
may he give you strong shoes.


 

 

 

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

A newborn babe
brings light to the house
warmth to the hearth
and joy to the soul
for wealth is family,
family is wealth.

Irish Newborn Baby Blessing

May all the blessing of our Lord touch your life today.
May He send His little angels to protect you on your way.
Such a wee little fit, sent from above.
Someone so precious to cherish and love.
May sunshine and moonbeams dance over you head
As you quietly slumber in your bed.
May good luck be with you wherever you go.
And your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow.

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;
Count on God instead of yourself.

Irish Quote

Deep peace of the running waves to you.

Deep peace of the flowing air to you.

Deep peace of the smiling stars to you.

Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.

Deep peace of the watching shepherds to you.

Deep peace of the son of Peace to you.

I lay my head to rest and in doing so I lay at your feet
the faces I have seen
the voices I have heard
the words I have spoken
the hands I have shaken
the service I have given
the joys I have shared
the sorrows revealed
I lay them at your feet
and in doing so
lay my head to rest

 


 

Irish Blessing For A Baby

Sleep, my babe, lie still and slumber,
All through the night
Guardian angels God will lend thee,
All through the night
Soft and drowsy hours are creeping,
Hill and vale in slumber sleeping,
Mother dear her watch is keeping,
All through the night
God is here, you
’ll not be lonely,
All through the night
‘Tis not I who guards thee only,
All through the night
Night’
s dark shades will soon be over,
Still my watchful care shall hover,
God with me His watch is keeping,
All through the night.

Irish Baby Christening

Dearest Father in Heaven,
Bless this child and bless this day
Of new beginnings.
Smile upon this child
And surround this child, Lord,
With the soft mantle of your love.
Teach this child to follow in your footsteps,
And to live life in the ways of
Love, faith, hope and charity.

We cannot share a sorrow
If we haven’t grieved a while
nor can we feel another’s joy
Until we’ve learned to smile.

There are good ships,
and there are wood ships,
the ships that sail the sea.
But the best ships are friendships,
and may they always be.

May the rains sweep gentle across your fields,
May the sun warm the land,
May every good seed you have planted bear fruit,
And late summer find you standing in fields of plenty.


 

Wherever you go and whatever you do,
May the luck of the Irish be there with you.

Wishing you always…
Walls for the wind,
A roof for the rain
And tea beside the fire.
Laughter to cheer you,
Those you love near you,
And all that your heart may desire.

Wherever you go and whatever you do,
May the luck of the Irish be there with you.
