The Seven Rejoices of Mary - Noirin Ni Riain




Here are two versions of ' The Seven Rejoices of Mary' both performed by Noirin Ni Riain. The first is the traditional Irish 'Seacht Suáilci Na Maighdine Muire' taken from the album Vox de Nube, whilst the second is in English (accompanied by the monks of Glenstal Abbey) and taken from the album The Darkest Midnight.


LYRICS:


An chéad suáilce fuair an Mhaighdean Bheannaithe
ba í sin an tsuáilce mhór
suáilce a fuair sí óna haonmhac uasal
go bhfuair sí a haon mhac beo.


An dara suáilce fuair an Mhaighdean Bheannaithe
ba í sin an tsuáilce mhór
suáilce a fuair sí óna haonmhac uasal
go deachaidh sé a léamh na leabhar.


An triú suáilce fuair an Mhaighdean Bheannaithe
ba í sin an tsuáilce mhór
suáilce a fuair sí óna haonmhac uasal
gur thug uirthi bláth na n-ord.


An ceathrú suáilce fuair an Mhaighdean Bheannaithe
ba í sin an tsuáilce mhór
suáilce a fuair sí óna haonmhac uasal
gurbh é fhéin an Slánaitheoir.


An cúigiú suáilce fuair an Mhaighdean Bheannaithe
ba í sin an tsuáilce mhór
suáilce a fuair sí óna haonmhac uasal
go ndearna sé na mairbh beo.


An séú suáilce fuair an Mhaighdean Bheannaithe
ba í sin an tsuáilce mhór
suáilce a fuair sí óna haonmhac uasal
gur thug sé fíon le hól.


An seachtú suáilce fuair an Mhaighdean Bheannaithe
ba í sin an tsuáilce mhór
suáilce a fuair sí óna haonmhac uasal
go dtabharfadh sé í suas ar neamh.
