There came to me assistance,
Danu fair and Brigit;
As Danu bore the Dagda,
As Dagda's wife bore Brigit,
As Brigit bore Ruadan
Without flaw in him,
Aid thou me in mine unbearing,
Aid me, O Brigit!
As Lugh was conceived of Ethlinn
Full perfect on every hand,
Assist thou me, foster-mother,
The conception to bring from the bone;
And as thou didst aid the Mother of the Gods,
Without gold, without corn, without kine,
Aid thou me, great is my sickness,
Aid me, O Brigit!
