AN IRISH NIGHT PRAYER

AN IRISH NIGHT PRAYER

A  NIGHT PRAYER

(translated from the Irish)

May the will of God be done by us.

May the death of the Saints be won by us.

And the light of the Kingdom begun in us:

May Jesus, the Child, be beside my bed,

May the Lamb of Mercy uplift my head,

May the Virgin Mary her brightness shed,

And Michael be steward of my soul!

 

– St Anthony’s Treasury, Laverty & Sons, Leeds, 1916

“ROUND ME FALLS THE NIGHT”

Round me falls the night;
Saviour, be my light:
Through the hours in darkness shrouded
Let me see your face unclouded;
Let your glory shine
In this heart of mine.
– William Romanis
