"Hymn to Brigid"

Tune: Traditional Gaelic

translation reworked by
Willow Firesong and Ellen Reed
for
Pagansong Volume 2
for original Gaelic words, see Gabhaim molta Bride

Quill Pen Divider

Sing we praise to Brigid:
Springtime's worthy praises;
Springtime comes from Winter frigid,
Brigid's touch upraises.

She is in the torch felt
Branches snowy-laden
At her touch begin to melt:
First among the Maidens.

Dark is Winter frigid
Cutting is its sharpness
But upon the Feast of Brigid
Spring brings light to darkness.
