Tomorrow we will be moving into our new house, so in the spirit of our Irish heritage, I offer these blessings and prayers for our new home....
God bless the corners of this house and all the lintel blessed,
And bless the hearth and bless the board and bless each place of rest,
And bless each door that opens wide to strangers as to kin,
And bless each crystal window pane that lets the starlight in,
And bless the rooftree overhead and every sturdy wall.
The peace of man. The peace of God. With peace and love for all.
May your troubles be less
And your blessings be more.
And nothing but happiness
Come through your door.
May the roof above us never fall in.
And may the friends gathered below it never fall out.
Bless you and yours
As well as the cottage you live in.
May the roof overhead be well thatched
And those inside be well matched.
