“Manannán Invocation”Lyrics:From tearing ocean into welcoming bay, Come homeward, Sailor, on silver keel. Cross beacon-guided the shattering shoal, and gently come, and joyful stay. From tearing ocean into welcoming bay, past guardian jetty guide your boat, and tie its rope to pillared pier, and gently come, and joyful stay. From tearing into welcoming bay, set foot on land with blessing touch, and enter home, and sit at hearth. Come homeward, Sailor; come Son of Sea: O gently come, O joyful stay.Music:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZH3x7i5HQYby Ceisiwr Serith (David Fickett-Wilbar)
