Beannachtam na Femle Padraig

Memorial of St. Patrick

I arise today
with God's strength to pilot my course,
with God's power to uphold me,
with God's wisdom to guide me,
with God's eye to give me seeing,
with God's ear to give me hearing,
with God's word for me to speak,
with God's hand to guard me,
with God's path to become my road,
with God's shield to protect me,
with God's army to ensure my salvation:
against every demon's trap,
against the lure of sin,
against lustful instincts,
against those who wish me ill, far and near.
