Brigid’s Prayer

Pieter_Bruegel_d._J._-_Bauernhochzeit

There are a couple of versions of this.  They’re all excellent.  This is my favorite.

I should like a great lake of beer for the King of Kings.

I should like the family of Heaven to be drinking it through time eternal.

I should like excellent meats of belief and pure piety.

I should like the men of Heaven at my house.

I should like barrels of peace at their disposal.

I should like for them cellars of mercy.

I should like cheerfulness to be their drinking.

I should like Jesus to be there among them.

I should like the three Marys of illustrious renown to be with us.

I should like the people of Heaven, the poor, to be gathered around from all parts.
