Prayers of the Western Highlanders : A New Collection Paperback / softback


Each day, O God, give gladness with thy dawn, Each day, O God, to wonted tasks we rise, Each day, O God, we kneel to thee, new-born, The little lovely Christ who grace supplies.The poetry of the Western Highlands of Scotland has its origins in the very earliest days of Celtic Christianity, and is imbued with profound religious experience and feeling.The prayers in this volume, many of which will resonate strongly with contemporary Christians, are translations of traditional Gaelic poems, and have never before appeared in print.

They form a fine addition to G. R. D. McLean's authoritative work, "Poems of the Western Highlanders", which was first published in 1961, and subsequently reissued (in whole or part) as "Praying with Highland Christians" (1988), "Praying with Celtic Christians" (1988, 1996) and "Celtic Spiritual Verse" (2002), all Triangle/SPCK.
