Translation of the preface and hymn. God's blessing.Colmán, son of the descendant of Cluasach, lector of Cork, he it is that made this hymn to save himself from the Yellow Plague which was in the time of the sons of Aed Sláne. For numerous were the people in Ireland at that time, and such was their number that they got but thrice nine ridges for each man in Ireland, to wit, nine of bog and nine of land and nine of forest. So the nobles of the men of Ireland fasted along with the sons of Aed Sláne, with Fechine of Fore, and with Aireran, and with Mauchan of Liath and with a multitude besides, for the thinning of the people, for scarcity of food had come there because of their number. Wherefore the Yellow Plague was sent upon them, and the sons of Aed Sláne died in that year, and the seniors whom we have mentioned, et alii multi. Dicunt alië that it was Colmán who made the whole (hymn). Others say that he made only two quatrains of it and that the school made it from that forth, i.e. a half-quatrain by each man of them. In Cork it was made, in the time of the two sons of Aed Sláne, namely, Blaithmac and Diarmait. Now this is the cause of making it. A great pestilence was sent on the men of Ireland, namely, the Buide connaill, and it searched all Ireland, and left alive only every third human being in Ireland. And to protect them and his school against that pestilence Colmán made this hymn. And it came to pass that he made it when he began to voyage forth to a certain island of the sea of Ireland, a-fleeing this pestilence, till there were nine waves between them and the land, for pestilence does not pass beyond, ut ferunt periti. And a certain one of this school asked Colmán what was the blessing wherein it had befallen them to go away thus. Said Colmán, “What blessing is this," quoth he, “but God's blessing ?” for this is what they tried, to go forth on islands of the sea, in flight before the Plague.

God's blessing bear us, come on us! Let Mary's son cover us!
Upon his protection (be) we to-night, wherever we go, let him

guard fairly !
Whether (at) rest or (in) motion, whether sitting or standing,
Heaven's Prince against every battle! this is the prayer we will


"I omit a latin note about Daniel.

5 A prayer of Abel, son of Adam, of Eli, of Enoch, to help us ! May they save us from the swift disease, whatever place throughout

the world it threatens. Noah and Abraham, Isaac the admirable son, May they surround us against disease : let not famine visit


We beseech the father of three quaternions and Joseph, 10 Let their prayers save us to the King many-angel'd, noble ! May Moses (the) good leader protect me, (he) who protected thro'.

Ruórum Mare :
Joshua, Aaron, son of Amra, David the bold youth.
Job with the tribulations protect us against the poisons,

May God's prophets guard us with Maccabeus' seven sons. 15 John Baptist we appeal to, let him be a safeguard to us, a protec

tion. Jesus with (his) apostles be for our aid against danger. Let Mary, Joseph, call us, et spiritus Stephani : From every peril may commemoration of Ignatius' name deliver us. Every martyr, every hermit, every saint who was in chastity, Be a shield to protect us, be an arrow from us against demons. Regem regnum rogamus in nostris sermonibus, Who saved Noah (with) his people diluvii temporibus. Melchisedech rex Salem incerto de semine, Let his prayers free us ab omni formidine. Soter who freed Lot from fire, qui per secula habetur, Ut nos omnes, precamur, liberare dignetur. Abram of Ur of the Chaldees, let the Prince who protected him

protect us, Let him free me who freed the people lympha fontis in danger. Let the Prince who saved three children from a furnace of fire

with redness,
30 Protect us as he protected David de manu Golai.

Let lampful heaven's Sovran spare us from our misery,
(He) who did not leave suum prophetam ulli leonum ori.
As he sent the angel who delivered Peter from his chain,
Let him be sent to us to assist us, let everything unsmooth be

smooth before us.
Let us tell our wish to our God nostro opere digno,
May we be with him in eternal life in paradisi regno.
As he saved prophet Jonas from a whale's belly, bright deed !
Let the good king threatening, mighty, protect us! God's blessing

bear us, come on us !

Truly, O God, truly, let this prayer be granted ; 40 Let little children of God's kingdom be around this school !

Truly, O God, let it be true! Let us all reach (the) peace of the

Whoever shall reach may we reach. Into Heaven's kingdom may

we come together !

* Isaac, father of the twelve patriarchs.

May we be without age in space, with angels in eternal life!
Great kings, prophets without extinction, angels, apostles, a noble sight.
Let them come with our Heavenly Father before (the) demons' host to

bless us.
A blessing on Patron Patrick with Ireland's saints around him,
A blessing on this town and on every one who is therein.
A blessing on Patron Brigit with Ireland's virgins around her:
Let all give-a fair declaration—a blessing on Brigit's dignity.
A blessing on Columcille with Alba's saints beside him,
On (the) soul of noble Adamnán who passed a law on the clans.
Upon (the) protection of the King of the Elements, a guardianship he

will not take from us, The Holy Spirit rain on us, Christ free us, bless us !
