A RESTING PRAYER
- God shield the house, the fire, the kine
- Every one who dwells herein to-night.
- Shield myself and my beloved group,
- Preserve us from violence and from harm;
- Preserve us from foes this night,
- For the sake of the Son of the Mary Mother,
- In this place, and in every place wherein they dwell to-night,
- On this night and on every night,
- This night and every night.
