Men's book with heaps of chaff are stored

God's book doth "golden grains" afford.

Then leave the chaff and spend thy pains

In gathering up thy golden grains.

Irish Blessing

An Irish Blessing

May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
And Grains fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the hollow of his hand.
