An Beannú na hÉireann
(An Irish Blessing)

by Bob Bradley
(Spring, Texas)

May peace and joy reign supreme
Inhabiting every part of your life
May your disposition be always serene
Mid happy times or those of strife

May your friends be loyal
And your enemies to friends transformed
May unkind feelings be left to spoil
That your life with goodness may be adorned

May the love of God be your closest companion
Making all of your burdens be light
May you never feel you have been abandoned
For you are never too far from His sight

May all of your days be blessed with contentment
May your troubles seem always brief
May you never waste one thought on resentment
May the Spirit of God from all ills bring relief
