May the road rise up to meet you (Gaelic Blessing)

Hymn – Gaelic Blessing – Lyrics

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always on your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
May the rain fall soft upon your fields.
From now until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of his hand.
