Rune Before Prayer



I am bending my knee In the eye of the Father who created me, In the eye of the Son who purchased me, In the eye of the Spirit who cleansed me, In friendship and affection. Through Thine own Anointed One, O God, Bestow upon us fullness in our need, Love towards God, The affection of God, The smile of God, The wisdom of God. The grace of God, The fear of God, And the will of God To do on the world of the Three, As angels and saints Do in heaven; Each shade and light, Each day and night, Each time in kindness, Give Thou us Thy Spirit. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ RANN ROMH URNUIGH Ta mi lubadh mo ghlun An suil an Athar a chruthaich mi, An suil an Mhic a cheannaich mi, An suil an Spioraid a ghlanaich mi, Le caird agus caoimh. Tre t'Aon Unga fein a Dhe, Tabhair duinn tachar 'n ar teinn, Gaol De, Gradh De, Gair De, Gais De, Gras De, Sgath De, Is toil De, Dheanamh air talamh nan Tre, Mar ta ainghlich is naoimhich A toighe air neamh. Gach duar agus soillse, Gach la agus oidhche, Gach uair ann an caoimhe, Thoir duinn do ghne. ​ ​ From the Carmina Gadelica
