AN ACHANAIDH ANAMA [28]

O Ios, a nochd Aghair nam bochd, Cholann gun lochd, Dh' fhuilinn gu gort, Fo bhinn nan olc, 'S a cheusadh.
Saor mi bho olc, Saor mi bho lochd, Caomhain mo chorp, Naomhaich mi nochd, O Ios, a nochd, 'S na treig mi.
Bairig domh neart, Aghair nam feart, Stiuir mi 'na d' cheart, Stiuir mi 'na d' neart, O Ios, 'na d' neart Gleidh mi.

THE SOUL PLAINT

O Jesu ! to-night Thou Shepherd of the poor, Thou sinless person Who didst suffer full sore, By ban of the wicked, And wast crucified.
Save me from evil, Save me from harm, Save Thou my body, Sanctify me to-night, O Jesu ! to-night, Nor leave me.
Endow me with strength, Thou Herdsman of might, Guide me aright, Guide me in Thy strength, O Jesu! in Thy strength Preserve me.
