A Prayer for Aine

(Source: Caroline, Master Member in the eCauldron.net forum)

Aine of the summer’s warmth
Be with us, and grant thy aid
Aine of the bright cloak,
Be with us, and grant thy blessing
Aine of the surest step
Be with us, and guide our footsteps
Aine of the best heart,
Be with us, and grant us joy

We will wash our faces
In the nine rays of the sun
‘Neath the sunwoven cloak of the Lady of Light
Let us find peace
In the nine rays of the sun
We will wash our faces
In the light of bright bloom
Let us find joy
We will wash our faces
In the nine rays of the sun
In the bounty of the generous heart
Let us find grace

Be we blessed in our rising up
And in our lying down
Be we blessed in our waking
And in our sleeping
Be we blessed in our coming in
And in our going out
Light before us
Light behind us
Light above us
Light below us
Light within us
Light without
Light about us
Bright about us shall ever be
the cloak of Aine
