An entry of Cynthia’s sent me to my little Wisdom of the Celts volume and I found this. There is a wonderful feeling of protection and companionship in this piece.
THE THREE EVERYWHERE
The Three who are over my head,
The Three who are under my tread;
The Three who are over me here,
The Three who are over me there,
The Three who are in the earth near,
The Three who are up in the air,
The Three who in heaven do dwell,
The Three in the great ocean swell,
Pervading, Three, O be with me.
Poems of the Western Highlanders.
It’s a tiny little book with some really good material from different sources. The complete Carmina Gadelica is on the net and there are several sources of the book this wonderful little prayer is from.
