The Deer’s Cry

I arise today

Through the strength of heaven:

Light of sun,

Radiance of moon,

Splendour of fire,

Speed of lightning,

Swiftness of wind,

Depth of sea,

Stability of earth,

Firmness of rock.

One of the oldest Celtic prayers, more commonly known as “St Patrick’s Breastplate”. Translation Kuno Meyer.
