From The Virtual Abbey:
Our celebrations, always full of spontaneity, are grounded in our own liturgical traditions. On Brigid’s day, we culminate with this song adapted from “The Blessing of Brigid” in Carmina Gadelica:
One group sings over and over:
I am under the shielding of Brigid each day,
I am under the shielding of Brigid each night.
While others sing in counterpart:
Brigid is my comrade-woman,
Brigid is my maker of song,
Brigid is my helping-woman,
my choicest of women,
This is incredibly heartfelt and gorgeous.
