Senex Puer

Composed by Eithne Ní Uallacháin

Deus meus adiuva me
Tabhair dom do shearc, a mhic ghil Dé
Tabhair dom do shearc, a mhic ghil Dé
Deus meus adiuva me.

Domine da quod peto a te,
Tabhair dom go dian, a ghrian ghlan ghlé,
Tabhair dom go dian, a ghrian ghlan ghlé,
Domine da quod peto a te.

All the dark and all the danger
All the wild and all the wonder
All the art and all the anger. Senex puer.

Let it be in me.

All the sainthood, all the sinner
All contained and all surrender
All the pain and all the pleasure, Senex puer.

Let it be in me.

All the hope and all compassion,
All success and all rejection
All the blue and all the pattern. Senex puer…

Let it be in me.

All of me is all of nothing
All the ash and all the burning
All the same and all the changing, Senex puer.

Let it be in me.
