Ortha nan Gaidheal
- Be Thy right hand, O God, under my head
- Be Thy light, O Spirit, over me shining.
- And be the cross of the nine angels over me down,
- From the crown of my head to the soles of my feet,
- From the crown of my head to the soles of my feet.
- O Jesu without offence, crucified cruelly,
- Under ban of the wicked Thou wert scourged,
- The many evils done of me in the body!
- That I cannot this night enumerate,
- That I cannot this night enumerate.
- O Thou King of the blood of truth,
- Cast me not from Thy covenant,
- Exact not from me for my transgressions,
- Nor omit me in Thy numbering,
- Nor omit me in Thy numbering.
- Be the cross of Mary and of Michael over me in peace,
- Be my soul dwelling in truth, be my heart free of guile,
- Be my soul in peace with thee, Brightness of the mountains.
- Valiant Michael, meet thou my soul,
- Morn and eve, day and night. May it be so.
