An Ancient Irish Prayer
An Ancient Irish Prayer, I arise today;
Through God's strength to pilot me;
God's might to uphold me,
God's wisdom to guide me,
God's eye to look before me,
God's shield to protect me,
God's host to save me
From snares of devils,
From temptation of vices,
From everyone who wishes me ill
Afar and anear
Alone and in a multitude.
~From St. Patrick's Breastplate
May you be poor in misfortune,
Rich in blessings,
Slow to make enemies,
Quick to make friends.
But rich or poor or quick or slow,
May you know nothing but happiness
From this day forward.
