Subject: RE: Irish Songs for Funeral
There's one which our choir does called a Gaelic?/Celtic? Blessing or May the Road Rise Up. Not sure where you could get it on short notice.
Words are something like this;
May the Road rise up to meet you
may the wind be always at your back
may the sun shine warm upon your face
and the rain fall soft upon your fields
(There's a bit more, it is an SATB arrangement after all and it ends)
And untill we meet agagin
may you be held in the palm of God's hand.
