Peace Between Neighbours

Peace between neighbors, 
Peace between kindred, 
Peace between lovers, 
   In love of the King of life.   
Peace between person and person, 
Peace between wife and husband, 
Peace between woman and children, 
The peace of Christ above all peace. 
Bless, O Christ, my face, 
    Let my face bless everything; 
Bless O Christ mine eye, 
    Let mine eye bless all it sees.

Translated from the Carmina Gaelic by Alexander Carmichael
