May misfortune follow you the rest of your life,
but never catch up.
May your laugh, your love and your wine be plenty,
thus your happiness will be nothing less.
I wish you health, I wish you well, and happiness galore.
I wish you luck for you and friends; what could I wish you more?
May your joys be as deep as the oceans, your troubles as light as its foam.
And may you find, sweet peace of mind, where ever you may roam.
May your blessings outnumber
the shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you
wherever you go.
May God bless and keep in good health your enemies, enemies.
Dance as if no one were watching,
Sing as if no one were listening,
And live every day as if it were your last.
May the best day of your past be the worst day of your future.
May your home always be too small to hold all your friends.
May your glass be ever full.
May the roof over your head be always strong.
And may you be in heaven half an hour before the devil knows you’re dead.
May you live as long as you want,
And never want as long as you live.
May the leprechauns be near you,
To spread luck along your way.
And may all the Irish angels,
Smile upon you St. Patrick’s Day.
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.
May your troubles be less
And your blessings be more.
And nothing but happiness
Come through your door.
