QUOTATION:May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be ever at your back
May the Good Lord keep you in the hollow of His hand.
May your heart be as warm as your hearthstone.
And when you come to die
may the wail of the poor
be the only sorrow
you’ll leave behind.
May God bless you always.
ATTRIBUTION:Author unknown, “An Irish Wish.”—Ralph L. Woods, A Third Treasury of the Familiar, p. 644 (1970).

  Another version of this popular Irish blessing:
        May the road rise to meet you,
        May the wind be always at your back,
        May the sun shine warm upon your face,
        May the rain fall soft upon your fields,
        And, until we meet again,
        May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
SUBJECTS:Prayers
