This short setting was originally scored for SATB voices with organ, with subsequent versions for SSAA unaccompanied (with optional guitar) and SATB unaccompanied. The text is a traditional Irish toast but also works as a blessing suitable for church services or even as a grace. The version for unaccompanied SSAA choir with optional guitar has been published by Plymouth Music, Florida. It is available in the Henry Leck Choral Series (editor: Henry Leck), catalogue number HL-207
