And until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of his hand. IRISH BLESSING

WEDDING PRAYER

By the power of Christ brought from heaven,

mayest thou love me.

As the sun follows the course,

mayest thou follow me.

As light to the eye,

as bread to the hungry,

and joy to the heart,

may thy presence be with me’,

oh one that I love,

’til death comes to part us asunder.
