The Pilgrim’s Aiding
By Mary McDonald
God be with you in every pass,
Jesus be with you on every hill,
Spirit be with you on every stream,
Headland and ridge and lawn;
Each sea and land, each moor and meadow,
Each lying down, each rising up.
In the trough of the waves, on the crest of the billows.
Each step of the journey you go.
From Carmina Gadelica by Alexander Carmichael, Vol. 3, p. 195.
