BLESS, O CHIEF OF GENEROUS CHIEFS
- Bless, O Chief of generous chiefs
- Myself and everything anear me,
- Bless me in all my actions,
- Make Thou me safe for ever,
- Make Thou me safe for ever.
- From every brownie and ban-shee,
- From every evil wish and sorrow,
- From every nymph and water-wraith,
- From every fairy-mouse and grass-mouse,
- From every fairy-mouse and grass-mouse.
- From every troll among the hills,
- From every siren hard pressing me,
- From every ghoul within the glens,
- Oh ! save me till the end of my day.
- Oh! save me till the end of my day.
