30 Days of Hymns, the Sacred Triad, Brighid #3: protection

Hail to Brighid,
Iron Queen of the Forge
Lady of the Green Isle
Protector of your people
let me be clothed in your mantle
let gentle green waves rest upon my shoulders
no arrow shall pierce me
no sword shall cut me down
no cruel words shall break me
I remain protected by thy crown
let your mantle cover me, O Brighid
keep my heart whole
let it hide me from darkness
and from harsh search lights
cloak me in invisibility
let me walk sight unseen
among those who would harm me
let it keep me hale
let it warm me from head to tail
and while I am so protected, Iron Lady of Spark and Flame
Queen of Hammer and Anvil
teach me to craft mantle and mail of my own
that I may lay it upon my own charges
let no arrow pierce them
nor sword cut them down
let no snake bite them
nor no darkness slither inside and defeat them
let their hearts remain whole
their spirits hale
teach me the secrets of your craft, Lady of the Green Mantle
teach me to hammer love into armor
teach me how to guard those that need it the most
Hail to you, Brighid
Iron Lady of the Iron Forge
Outfitter to Warriors
and those
just fighting
to survive.
