May there always be work for your hands to do;
May your purse always hold a coin or two;
May the sun always shine on your windowpane;

May the hand of a friend always be near you;
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
and may you be in heaven a half hour before the devil knows you’re dead.
