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 the fields.
May the light of friendship guide your paths together.
May the laughter of children grace the halls of your home.
May the joy of living for one another
trip a smile from your lips,
A twinkle from your eye.
And when eternity beckons,
at the end of a life heaped high with love,
May the good Lord embrace you
with the arms that have nurtured you
the whole length of your joy-filled days.
May the gracious God hold you both
in the palm of His hands.
And, today, may the Spirit of Love
find a dwelling place in your hearts.
As warm bread is sliced by a gleaming knife
May sunlight cut through the harsh winter cold
May God's love shine brightly in your common life
And may your own romance be never old
May hope increase with each lengthening day
And rout the ache of hurt and conflict;'s gloom
May loyal friends never be far away
With the promise that spring will surely bloom
May our good God of songs round the fireplace
Of love and laughter, of good wine and fun
Lurk always in your home's hidden space
And bind you in love when each day is done.
Sping Wedding Blessing
May spring flowers bright always mark your way
And blue skies shelter a journey safe and long
May conflict never take your peace away
May good friends protect you from every wrong
May you answer always God's call to play
And may God who changed water into wine
Bless and protect your life together.
May Angels Surround You
As close to you as your wedding rings
May angels shade you both neath their wings.
May the quick, warm winds of spring
Sweep away all grimy clouds
Joy and happiness ever bring
And exorcise any deadly doubts
May your love be never ending
And may you one another guide
Onward from this happy wedding
And from each other never hide.
Two lovers in whatever crowd,
To each other may you always cling
Of your hope and laughter proud
In good and bad and everything.
Promise Irish Blessing
Through all of life's stops and starts
May the promise of this wedding day
Be kept alive in both your hearts.
May the rhythms of daily life
Give new strength to your love and faith
May you truimph over foolish strife
And come home together sound and safe
May troubles give you in their turn
A challenge to begin again
May you with hope and joy thus learn
Surely that love never ends.
