- The genealogy of the holy maiden Brigit,
- Radiant arrow of flame, noble foster-mother of gods,
- Brigit the daughter of the Dagda,
- Dagda the Good God, the son of Ethlinn,
- Ethlinn the daughter of Balor,
- Balor the king of the Fomoire.
- Every day and every night
- That I say the genealogy of Brigit,
- I shall not be killed, I shall not be injured,
- I shall not be enchanted, I shall not be cursed,
- Neither shall my power leave me.
- No earth, no sod, no turf shall cover me,
- No fire, no sun, no moon shall burn me,
- No water, no lake, no sea shall drown me,
- No air, no wind, no vapour shall sicken me,
- No glamour out of Faery shall o'ertake me,
- And I under the protection of the holy maiden,
- My gentle foster-mother, my beloved Brigit.
