Be Thou My Vision
a beautiful traditional hymn. The original text this song is based on is attributed to Dallan Forgaill (c.530-598)
Be Thou my breast-plate, my sword for the fight;
Be Thou my armour, and be Thou my might.
Thou my soul's shelter, and Thou my high tower:
Raise Thou me Heavenward, O power of my power.

Celtic Prayer for Safety
Each day and each night that I place myself under his keeping,
I shall not be forgotten.
I shall not be destroyed.
I shall not be imprisoned.
I shall not be harassed by evil powers.
(Prayer by St Brigit of Kildare, A.D 453-524)
