Sweet Brighid so fair and bright,
love and joy radiate from your face.
On the eve of your holiest day
a candle invites you into my house this night.
Enter in and be welcome in this place
A bed is made for you to rest your head.
Bestow upon us your gifts of peace and light.
Before parting on your sacred journey
making the land green as you roam,
impart your blessing of protection on this home.
