A’Ghrian, Hymn to The Sun videos discovered by ArchMatrona (Bishop) Georgia


Sunna or Sól. Norse goddess of the sun

A’ Ghrian
The Sun
Verse One:

Fàilte ort féin, a ghrian nan tràth,
I welcome you, sun of the seasons,

‘S tu siubhail ard nan speur;
As you travel the skies aloft;

Do cheumaibh treun air sgéith nan ard,
Your steps are strong on the wing of the heavens,

‘S tu màthair àigh nan reul.
You are the glorious mother of the stars.
Verse Two:

Thu laighe sìos an cuan na dìth
You descend into the deadly sea

Gun dìobhail is gun sgàth,
Without distress and without fear;

Thu ‘g éirigh suas air stuagh na sìth,
You rise up on the wave of peace,

Mar rìoghain òg fo bhlàth.
Like a youthful Queen in bloom.

This is a separate sunset prayer:

Ha-misham doh oss-narah.. na-cuir chia mo-ornah…
I am in hope in its proper time that the gracious One

As rom sa-a-ah, so-lar-s, nuhn-gra-as, Marra-husa, ca-ah-ma, gala noc
will not put out for me the light of grace even as thou dost leave me this night


Song 316, Carmichael, Carmina Gadelica, 1992, p292 (English only); Carmichael, Carmina Gadelica Volume III, 1941, pp310-311.
