St. Brigid’s Prayer

To my  beloved husband and the first Friday Saucer men!

St. Brigid’s Prayer

I’d like to give a lake of beer to God.

I’d love the Heavenly

Host to be tippling there

For all eternity.

I’d love the men of

Heaven to live with me,

To dance and sing.

If they wanted,

I’d put at their disposal

Vats of suffering.

White cups of love

I’d give them,

With a heart and a half;

Sweet pitchers of mercy

I’d offer

To every man.

I’d make Heaven a cheerful spot,

Because the happy heart is true.

I’d make the men contented for their own sake

I’d like Jesus to love me too.

I’d like the people of heaven to gather

From all the parishes around,

I’d give a special welcome to the women,

The three Marys of great renown.

I’d sit with the men,

the women of God

There by the lake of beer

We’d be drinking good health forever

And every drop would be a prayer.
