God Listen to My Prayer

CelticCapital2God listen to my prayer,
bend to me your ear,
let my supplications and my prayers
ascend to you upwards.
Come King of Glory,
to protect me down,
King of life and mercy
with the aid of the Lamb,
Son of Mary Virgin,
to protect me with power.

Son of the lovely Mary
of purest fairest beauty
