ORA CEARTAIS [20]

Ionnlaidh mise m' aodann 'S na naodh gatha greine, Mar a dh' ionnlaid Moire a Mac Am bainne brac na breine.
Gaol a bhi 'na m' aodann, Caomh a bhi 'na m' ghnuis, Caora meala 'na mo theanga, M' anail mar an tuis.
Is dubh am bail ud thall, Is dubh daoine th' ann; Is mis an' eala bhan, Banruinn os an ceann.
Falbhaidh mi an ainme Dhe, An riochd feidh, an riochd each, An riochd nathrach, an riochd righ: Is treasa liom fin na le gach neach.

INVOCATION FOR JUSTICE

I will wash my face In the nine rays of the sun, As Mary washed her Son In the rich fermented milk.
Love be in my countenance, Benevolence in my mind, Dew of honey in my tongue, My breath as the incense.
Black is yonder town, Black are those therein, I am the white swan, Queen above them.
I will travel in the name of God, In likeness of deer, in likeness of horse, In likeness of serpent, in likeness of king: Stronger will it be with me than with all persons.
