Today is not for staying in
It's time to leave routine,
Come out now to celebrate
The blessing of the isle of emerald green.
Bring out the happy fiddle
And we'll dance the hours away,
Don the wearin 'O' the green
For it's time to seize the day.
Bring the one you love
And all those that belong to ye,
To thank God for His goodness
Abundant as can be
The sun is shining warm
And the grass be sweet beneath,
All your worries leave behind
And all your heart-aches cease
Find a pretty shamrock green
And gaze at it's petal three
To remember the trinity of God above
And all His love for Thee.
May streams and woods and calling birds
Swell in the celebration too,
And as the gentle wind doth blow
'Twill bring God's love to you.

Blessing Of The Three

The Sacred Three
My fortress be
Encircling me,
Come and be round
My hearth, my home.

Fend Thou my kin
And every sleeping thing within
From scathe, from sin.
Thy care our peace
Through mid of night
To light's release. 

Three is Ireland's number of blessing.
Hence the Shamrock
a member of the clover family,
was used by St Patrick to explain
the mystery of the Trinity,
the three leaves of the shamrock representing the Trinity
(the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit).
To this day the shamrock remains
 the national emblem of Ireland
and is worn proudly by Irish people the world over on St. Patrick's Day
