May the road rise up to meet you *all/both
On each and every morn
May the rains fall soft upon your fields
Of waving yellow corn
May the wind be always at your back
And the sun's warmth on your face
And until we meet again my friends
God keep you in his grace

May the grains of sand upon the shore
Number all your days
May the love of God in darkest times
Enlighten all your ways
May the pipes forever be your soul
And the bodhran beat your heart
And the jigs and reels your ups and downs
Till life's ceile you depart

May the rest of life be the best of life
And no one do you wrong
May children's laughter be your music
Their growing be your song
And when the time says we must part
As time will always do
May God go with you *all/both my friends
And this blessing stay with you
