A Poem From the Talk

THE GUIDING LIGHT OF ETERNITY
O God, who broughtst me from the rest of last night
Unto the joyous light of this day,
Be Thou bringing me from the new light of this day
Unto the guiding light of eternity.
Oh ! from the new light of this day
Unto the guiding light of eternity.
SOLUS-IUIL NA SIORRUIDHEACHD
HE, thug mis a fois na h-oidhch an raoir
Chon solus aoibh an la an diugh,
Bi da mo thoir bho sholus ur an la an diugh,
Chon solus iul na siorruidheachd,
O ! bho sholus ur an la an diugh,
Gu solus iul na siorruidheachd.
