Prayers to the Moon

An Ghealach Ur (CG #54)

If to-night, O moon, thou hast found us
In peaceful, happy rest,
May thy laving lustre leave us
Seven times still more blest.

O moon so fair,
May it be so,
As seasons come,
And seasons go.

CG, Page 284
Glory to thee forever
Thou bright moon, this night;
Thyself art ever
The glorious lamp of the poor.

Hymn to the New Moon (CG #303)

Hail to thee, thou new moon,
beauteous guidant of the sky;
hail to thee, thou new moon,
beauteous fair one of grace.

Hail to thee, thou new moon,
beauteous guidant of the star;
hail to thee, thou new moon,
beauteous loved one of my heart.

Hail to thee, thou new moon,
beauteous guidant of the clouds;
hail to thee, thou new moon,
beauteous dear one of the heavens!

Queen of the Night (CG #312)
Hail unto thee,
Jewel of the night!

Beauty of the heavens,
Jewel of the night!

Mother of the stars,
Jewel of the night!

Fosterling of the sun,
Jewel of the night!

Majesty of the stars,
Jewel of the night!
