>The Peace: A Celtic Night Prayer

The peace of God, the peace of men, 
The peace of Columba kindly, 
The peace of Mary mild, the loving, 
 The peace of Christ, King of tenderness.  
Be upon each window, upon each door, 
Upon each hole that lets in light, 
Upon the four corners of my house, 
Upon the four corners of my bed, 
    Upon the four corners of my bed;
Upon each thing my eye takes in, 
Upon my body that is of earth
And upon my soul that came from on high.
    Upon my body that is of earth
And upon my soul that came from on high.
Translated from the Gaelic by Alexander Carmichael
