Go figure, the Irish blessing is set to music by a Hungarian born composer; Denes Agay. You figured right if you think it'd be pretty good. It's beyond exquisite! The Irish Blessing you know and love by sight, becomes the ultimate prayerful experience when melody and choral performance is added. The "Old Irish Blessing" is a great addition your St. Patrick's Day tradtions. May the moment rise up to meet you. 


Old Irish Blessing Lyrics - Denes Agay

May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

The rains fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of his hand.


May God be with you and bless you:

May you see your children's children.

May you be poor in misfortune,

Rich in blessings.

May you know nothing but happiness

From this day forward.


May the road rise up to meet you

May the wind be always at your back

May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home

And may the hand of a friend always be near.


May green be the grass you walk on,

May blue be the skies above you,

May pure be the joys that surround you,

May true be the hearts that love you.
