Traditional Irish House Blessing

God bless the corners of this house
And be the lintel blessed.

Bless the hearth, the table too
And bless each place of rest.

Bless each door that opens wide
To stranger, kith and kin;

Bless each shining window-pane
That lets the sunshine in.

Bless the roof-tree up above

Bless every solid wall.
The peace of Man,
the peace of love,
The peace of God on all.
