Athair ar Neamh - Father in Heaven
from the album Memory of Trees

   
le Eithne Ní Bhraonáin

Athair ar Neamh, Dia linn
Athair ar Neamh, Dia liom
M'anam, mo chroí, mo ghlóir,
moladh duit, a Dhia.

Fada an lá, go sámh
Fada an oích', gan ghruaim
Aoibhneas, áthas, grá,
moladh duit, a Dhia.

Móraim thú ó lá go lá.
Móraim thú ó oích' go hóich'.

Athair ar Neamh, Dia linn
Athair ar Neamh, Dia liom
An ghealach, an ghrian, an ghaoth,
moladh duit, a Dhia.

Father in Heaven, God bless us [1]
Father in Heaven, God bless me
My soul, my heart, my glory,
praise to you, God.

Long is the peaceful day
Long is the night without gloom
Delight, joy, love,
praise to you, God.

I glorify you day after day.
I glorify you night after night.

Father in Heaven, God bless us
Father in Heaven, God bless me
The moon, the sun, the wind,
praise to you, God.

[1] A literal translation of "Dia linn" is "God be with us".
