May Brigid bless the house wherein you dwell.
Bless every fireside, every wall, and floor.
Bless every heart that beats beneath the roof.
And every tongue and mind for evermore.
Bless every hand that toils to bring it joy.
And every foot that walks its portals through.
This is my wish today my constant prayer.
May Saint Brigid bless the house that shelters you.
