Two Blessings: Tomorrow

My kind-hearted "little" brother is tying the knot tomorrow. For that occasion, two blessings - one Irish, one Slovak:

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Keď budú svadobný pochod hrať,
   čo viac vám na cestu môžem priať?
   Nech šťastie je stále s vami.
   A čo život nemôže vám dať,
   to s láskou nahraďte si sami.
   Vykročte dvaja, ako muž a žena.
   Do daru si lásku dajte
   a do sŕdc vpíšte svoje mená.
   Prejde čas a prídu prvé vrásky
   a vy v očiach svojich detí
   nájdete nakrajší dar žijúcej lásky.

   As they're playing the Wedding march
   What can I wish to you on your journey?
   May happiness always be with you
   And what the life cannot give you
   Make up for with your love.
   Step out in two, as husband and wife.
   Give each other love as a gift
   And inscribe your names into your hearts.
   Time will pass and first wrinkles will show.
   Then, in the eyes of your children
   You will see the most beautiful gift of living love
