Irish Blessing

An Old Irish Blessing

St. Patrick's - Shamrock

May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
And rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.

After reading this passage, you can infer that a blessing is...
  1. An old poem
  2. An ominous saying
  3. A positive prayer
  4. A supportive person
2. 
Many Irish blessings were agricultural. This blessing supports that statement.
  1. True
  2. False
3. 
What does this blessing mean?



4. 
Another Irish blessing reads...

May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.

How does it differ from the first?



5. 
Read both Irish blessings again and use them to write your own new Irish blessing.
