May the Lord show you
the greatness of his goodness,
that you overflow with thanks
May the Lord bless you abundantly
with rest for the heart,
power for virtue,
wisdom for life,
and patience in suffering.
May the Lord bless you
with joyful hope,
and one day
with the inexpressible joys
of eternal life.
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm on 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 misfortune,
Rich in blessings,
May you know nothing but happiness From this day forward.
May the road rise to meet you
May the wind always be 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 sky above you,
May pure be the joys that surround you,
May true be the hears that love you.
I hope that you have used it full and well.
And yet another starting now, today:
Perhaps you should rededicate your life,
And give it to the Lord, who gave you yours.
For all that went before has passed behind;
Your future lies before you like a road.
And so I pray the Lord will be with you,
And dwell with you, and keep you as His own,
And walk with you, beside you, down the road.
And now I pray that He will make today
The finest birthday that you ever had.
