Poetry Month – For the Beauty of the Earth ’cause I missed Sunday

Another Hymn that has always comforted the bay druid that I was

1 For the beauty of the earth,
For the glory of the skies,
For the love which from our birth
Over and around us lies.

Refrain:
Lady of all, to Thee we raise,
This our hymn of grateful praise.

2 For the wonder of each hour
Of the day and of the night,
Hill and vale, and tree and flower,
Sun and moon, and stars of light. (Refrain)

3 For the joy of ear and eye,
For the heart and mind’s delight,
For the mystic harmony
Linking sense to sound and sight. (Refrain)

4 For the joy of human love,
Brother, sister, parent, child,
Friends on earth and friends above,
For all gentle thoughts and mild. (Refrain)

Brighid Prayer for the morning

Brighid

I ask your healing for people that I love

I light a candle and make a fervent prayer

That healing comes to those I love

Let me be your flame

Brighid

Let me your ears and hands here

Let me be the eyes that see those that need help

Let healing come through me

Let your waters flow through me

Brighid

I let you use me for what you need to do

Not just every 20 days but every day

Let me be your flame

Let me be your well

Brighid

Let me there for those in need

Let me go with a whole heart

Be thou with me

Let me be your flame

Brighid

Let me be open to helping

Whether it be a baby duck

Or a human being

Let me be your hands of helping

Let me be your waters

Brighid

Let me know when to let go

Let me know when not to step in

Let me know when beings

need to take their own path

Let me be your flame

Brighid

Let me be your hands

Let me be your eyes

Let me be your heart

Let me be your flame

Let me be your flame

Let me be your flame

Poetry Month Brighid’s Kiss – Triniti

Brighid’s Kiss Lyrics

Trinití

Gabbaim molta Bríde (I praise Brighid)

Ionmhain í le hÉirinn (Beloved of Ireland)

Ionhain le gach tír í (Beloved of all lands)

Molaímis go léir i (Let us all praise her)

Lóchrann geal na Laighneach

(The bright torch of Linster)

A’ soilsiú feadh na tíre (Shining throughout the land)

Cean ar óghaibh Éireann (The pride of all Irish women)

Ceann na mban ar míne

(The pride of women for gentleness)

Tig an geimhreadh dian dubh (Comes the hard dark winter)

A’ gearradh lena ghéire (Cutting with it’s severity)

Ach ar Lá ‘le Bríde (But on St. Brighids Day)

Gar dúinn earrach Éireann (The Irish spring is near to us)

Brighid of the sunrise

Rising in the morning

Rising with the springtime

Greening all the land

See you in the soft cloud

See you in the raindrop

See you in the winds of change

Blowing through the land

You the red eared white cow

Nourishing the people

Nourish now the hunger

Souls longing in our land

Bird that is unfolding

Now the time’s upon us

Only have we eyes to see

Your Epiphany

Gabbaim molta Bríde (I praise Brighid)

Ionmhain í le hÉirinn (Beloved of Ireland)

Ionhain le gach tír í (Beloved of all lands)

Molaímis go léir i (Let us all praise her)
