“The Lord bless you and keep you;
25 The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
26 The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.
Fun Irish sayings for your St. Patty’s day
- “Happy out” : means “happy,” but for some reason we feel the need to add “out.” It’s usually used in the present, so basically while you’re in the process of having a whale of a time, you’re happy out. In use: “Look at you there, happy out leaping about the place.”
- May the luck of the Irish be with you!
