Song to Brigid

download audio

Words, tune and arrangement by me

Brigid shield of fire and water
Healing well, perpetual light
Threefold sister, Dagda's daughter
Guard me with your flame so bright

Tig an éirí na gréine tar éis an oiche fada
After the long winter comes the spring

Níl aon bhealach amach ach tríd
Níl aon bhealach amach ach tríd an tine
Níl aon bhealach amach ach tríd
Níl aon bhealach amach ach Bríd

Brigid spark of hope in darkness
Brigid of the forge of life
Smith of transformation, Goddess
Guide me safely through all strife

Tig an earrach tar éis an gheimhreadh fada
After the long night comes the dawn

Níl aon bhealach amach ach tríd
Níl aon bhealach amach ach tríd an tine
Níl aon bhealach amach ach tríd
Níl aon bhealach amach ach Bríd

Keep the darkness from me
lantern in my chest
Light the way before me
lead me to my rest

Coinnigh an dorchadas uaim
lóchrann i mo chroí
Soilsigh an bhealach ar aghaidh dom
treoraigh mé do mo críoch

Níl aon bhealach amach ach tríd
Níl aon bhealach amach ach tríd an tine
Níl aon bhealach amach ach tríd
Níl aon bhealach amach ach Bríd
