ACHANAIDH CHOITCHEANN A GENERAL SUPPLICATION
Anon. trans. Anon. - from Gaelic
Dhe, eisd ri mí urnuigh,
Lub rium do chluas,
Leig mí achan agus mí urnuigh.
T' ionnsuidh a suas.
Thig, a Righ na glorach
Da mí chomhnadh a nuas,
A Righ na bith ís na trocair,
Le comhnadh an Uain,
A Mhic na Muire Oighe
Da mí chomhnadh le buadh,
A Mhic na Muire mine
Is finne-ghile snuadh.
God, listen to my prayer,
Bend to me Thine ear,
Let my supplications and my prayers
Ascend to Thee upwards,
Come, Thou King of Glory,
To protect me down,
Thou King of life and mercy
With the aid of the Lamb.
Thou Son of Mary Virgin
To protect me with power,
Thou Son of the lovely Mary
Of purest fairest beauty.
