The love and affection of heaven be to you,

The love and affection of the saints be to you,

The love and affection of the angels be to you,

The love and affection of the sun be to you,

The love and affection of the moon be to you,

Each day and night of your lives,

To keep you from haters, to keep you from harmers, to keep you from oppressors.

 

–from the Carmina Gadelica, oral hymns, poems, and charms collected by Alexander Carmichael in the late 19th Century.
