Prayer to Manannan Mac Lir

     Manannan Mac Lir
    Hear your priestess’s call
    Accept my offerings and
    Give me strength to right the wrongs which are done
    To the ocean and its creatures by humankind

     Take my tears to cleanse the polluted water
    Take my grief to create your mists and chase away the poachers
    Take my rage to fuel your waves to sink the killer boats

     Hear my oath while I lay on the wet sand
    Watching the tides bring humanity’s garbage
    Day in and day out
    I will protect what is yours
    By sea land and sky I swear.
