Irish Christmas Blessings

Here are some Irish Christmas blessings, poems, songs and sayings to share with your family, friends and loved ones this Christmas season!

Blessing #1

God grant you lightness in your step,
A smile on every face you meet,
Loved ones gathered at your hearth,
And at your door, good friends to greet,
A holy hymn upon your lips,
A window candle burning bright,
And may the Good Lord bless your heart,
And come to dwell here Christmas night.

Blessing #2

The light of the Christmas star to you,
The warmth of a home and hearth to you,
The cheer and good will of friends to you,
The hope of a childlike heart to you,
The joy of a thousand angels to you,
The love of the Son and God’s peace to you

Blessing #3

This Christmas may you have…
Walls for the wind,
And a roof for the rain,
And drinks bedside the fire,
Laughter to cheer you,
And those you love near you,
And all that your heart may desire.
