Bless this party, full of fun.
And bless to me these friends.
Bless this beautiful Spring day,
And bless to me the sounds of laughter, of bird songs.
Bless these snacks of cookies and lemonade,
And bless to me the bags of dog treats.
Bless these people gathering in celebration.
And bless to me their love of dogs, of cats,
Of creatures with which they share their lives.
Bless our Jack, who still brings joy to the world.
And bless to me his wee book of Celtic poems.
Bless to me this party.
