Patrick’s Blessing on Munster

Blessing from the Lord on High
Over Munster fall and lie;
To her sons and daughters all
Choicest blessings still befall ;
Fruitful blessing on the soil
That supports her faithful toil!

Blessing full of ruddy health,
Blessing full of every wealth
That her borders furnish forth,
East and West and South and North ;
Blessing from the Lord on High
Over Munster fall and lie!

Blessing on her peaks in air,
Blessing on her -flag-stones bare;
Blessing tram her ridges flow
To her grassy glens below;
Blessing from the Lord on High
Over Munster fall and lie!

As the sands upon the shore
Underneath her ships, for store,
Be her hearths, a twinkling host
Over mountain, plain, and coast!
Blessing from the Lord on High
Over Munster fall and lie!
