Hymns, Prayers, Poems In Honour Of Saint Brigid

Music by M.S. Words by Mother Cecilia C., Brigidine Convent, Goresbridge, Co Kilkenny. Circa 1911

Far above enthroned in glory
Sweetest Saint of Erin's Isle
See thy children kneel before thee
Turn on us a Mother's smile.

Sancta Maria, hear our pleading
Faith and hope and holy love
Sweet St Brigid, Spouse of Jesus,
Sent to us from Heaven above.

Sweet St Brigid, Erin's children,
Far and near o'er land and sea
In the world and in the cloister
Fondly turn with love to thee.

Sancta Maria, sooth the mourner
Shield the weary tempted soul
Sweet St Brigid, guide thy children
To thy bright and happy home.
