Ortha nan Gaidheal
TO WHOM SHALL I OFFER OBLATION
- To whom shall I offer oblation
- In name of Michael on high ?
- I will give tithe of my means
- To the forsaken illustrious One.
- Because of all that I have seen,
- Of His peace and of His mercy,
- Lift Thou my soul to Thee, O Son of God,
- Nor leave me ever.
- Remember me in the mountain,
- Under Thy wing shield Thou me;
- Rock of truth, do not forsake me,
- My wish it were ever to be near Thee.
- Give to me the wedding garment,
- Be angels conversing with me in every need,
- Be the holy apostles protecting me,
- The fair Mary and Thou, Jesu of grace,
- The fair Mary and Thou, Jesu of grace.
