These things I warmly wish to you, Someone to love Some work to do A bit of sun, a bit of cheer And a guardian angel always near.
Be they kings, or poets, or farmers, They’re a people of great worth, They keep company with the angels, And bring a bit of heaven here to earth
May you have: A world of wishes at your command God and his angels close at hand Friends and family their love impart, And Irish blessings in you heart.
When Irish eyes are smiling, Tis like a morn in spring. With a lilt of Irish laughter You can hear the angels sing When Irish hearts are happy All the world is bright and gay When Irish eyes are smiling Sure, they steal your heart away.
May you always walk in sunshine. May you never want for more. May Irish angels rest their wings right beside your door.
May God grant you always… A sunbeam to warm you, A moonbeam to charm you, A sheltering angel, so nothing can harm you
May neighbours respect you, Trouble neglect you, The angels protect you, And heaven accept you.
May God grant you many years to live, for sure he must be knowing, the earth has angels all too few and heaven is overflowing…
