Brighid nighean Dùghaill Duinn
‘ic Aoidh, ‘ic Airt ‘ic Cuinn ‘ic Criara
‘ic Cairbre ‘ic Cais ‘ic Carmaic
‘ic Cartaich ‘ic Cuinn.

Brighid nam brat
Brighid na brìg
Brighid na cleachd
Brighid na frìth

Brighid nan gealachos
Brighid na ceardach
Brighid nan gealabhos
Brighid bàrdachd.

Brighid Ban-Dia
Brighid na bìth
Brighid na sìthean
Brighid na brìgh

Brighid na gealach
Brighid na slànaich
Brighid nagealbhan
Brighid Bean-Shìth

Gach latha agus gach oidhche nì mi Sloinntearachd na Brighid:
Each day and night that I say the Descent of Brigit:
I shall not be slain, I shall not be wounded,
I shall not be put in cell, I shall not be torn in sunder.

Cha loisg grian mi
Cha loisg teine mi
Cha loisg ial mi
Cha loisg gile mi

Cha Bhàth uisge mi
Cha Bhàth sàla mi
Cha Bhàth lighe mi
Cha Bhàth burn mi

This is the Day of Brighid
The Queen will come from the Mound
I will not touch the Queen
Nor will the Queen touch me.

The Feast Day of Brighid
The Daughter of Ivor shall come from the Knoll
I will not touch the Daughter of Ivor
Nor will she harm me.

Today is the Day of Brighid
The serpent shall come from the hole
I will not molest the serpent
Nor will the serpent molest me.
