ACHLASAN CHALUIM-CHILLE [166][Celtic]
BUAINIDH mi mo choinneachan,Mar choinneamh ri mo naomh,Chasga fuath nam fear foille, Agus boile nam ban baoth.
Buainidh mi m' achlasan,Mar achainidh ri m' Righ,Gur liom-sa buaidh an achlasain, Thar gach neach a chi.
Buainim an duille gu h-ard,Mar a dh' orduich an t-Ard Righ,An ainm Tri Naomh nan agh, Agus Moire, Mathair Chriosd.
ACHLASAIN Chaluim-chille,Gun sireadh, gun iarraidh,Achlasain Chaluim-chille,Fo m' righe gu siorruidh!<%image(20060610-10000.jpg|250|351|)%>Air shealbh dhaona,Air shealbh mhaona,Air shealbh mhianna,Air shealbh chaora,Air shealbh mhaosa,Air shealbh iana,Air shealbh raona,Air shealbh mhaora,Air shealbh iasga,Air shealbh bhliochd is bhuar,Air shealbh shliochd is shluagh,Air shealbh bhlar is bhuadh,Air tir, air lir, air cuan,Trid an Tri ta shuas,Trid an Tri ta nuns,Trid an Tri ta buan,Achlasain Chaluim-chille,Ta mis a nis da d’ bhuain, Ta mis a nis da d’ bhuain.
[English]
ST COLUMBA'S PLANTI WILL pluck what I meet,As in communion with my saint,To stop the wiles of wily men, And the arts of foolish women.
I will pluck my Columba plant,As a prayer to my King,That mine be the power of Columba's plant, Over every one I see.
I will pluck the leaf above,As ordained of the High King,In name of the Three of glory, And of Mary, Mother of Christ.
PLANTLET of Columba,Without seeking, without searching,Plantlet of Columba,Under my arm for ever!For luck of men,For luck of means,For luck of wish (?),For luck of sheep,For luck of goats,For luck of birds,For luck of fields,For luck of shell-fish,For luck of fish,For luck of produce and kine,For luck of progeny and people,For luck of battle and victory,On land, on sea, on ocean,Through the Three on high,Through the Three a-nigh,Through the Three eternal,Plantlet of Columba,I cull thee now, I cull thee now.
