Brigid Calling

Brigid Calling
Birdsong of the morning
Longford birdsong calling
Awaken all you earthlings
Joy of spring inviting

Breathe the breath of
Brigid, over land and hill-
Side, through the plains 
From Ardagh, there her
Memory flourishes

Make the Cross of rushes
Spread the Cloak of healing
Visit Well with Blessing
Gird with Belt protecting

Sing her Hymns, thanks-
Giving, flame in hearts
Keep kindling, recite her
Chants and Mantras, tell
Her Stories, always
