Enya - Athair Ar Neamh Lyrics

Athair ar neamh, Dia linn
Athair ar neamh, Dia liom
M'anam, mo chroi, mo ghloir
Moladh duit a Dhia

Fada an la, go samh
Fada an oiche, gan gruaim
Aoibhneas, athas, gra
Moladh duit a Dhia

Moraim thu, o la go la
Moraim thu, o oiche go hoiche

Athair ar neamh, Dia linn
Athair ar neamh, Dia liom
An ghealach, an ghriain, an ghaoth
Moladh duit a Dhia


Father in Heaven, God bless us
Father in Heaven, God bless me
My soul, my heart, my glory
Praise be to you, oh God

Long is the peaceful day
Long is the night without gloom
Wonder, joy, love
Praise be to you, oh God

I praise you from day to day
I praise you night after night

Father in Heaven, God bless us
Father in Heaven, God bless me
The moon, the sun, the wind
Praise be to you, oh God

  35. timomastosalo

    Latin letters so don't fit for the Celtic languages: they should have their own letters. Feels like 2-3 sounds need about 7 letters to write :)

    Aaron Hernandez Burleson

    A. It does, though I can't say much more since Gaelic is a language I have very little experience with
    B. You just have to get used to that. In Italian if an i or e comes after a c then it becomes a hard "ch" sound, like ciao. In Swedish putting s and k together will make a "sh" sound, like in sköldpadda. You just kind of get a feel for what makes what


    @Aaron Hernandez Burleson B. know those langauges and their spelling. Swedish I've spoken since I was 9 yrs old, though not so often. Might be a year goes buy that I only hear some Swedish names.

    Italian orthgraphy I studied on my own as an adult - it's mostly very easy: the letters corrspond close one to one woth the letters. Some say there are 2 different e sounds, but well, maybe it just depends on the surrounding sounds, making them variants of one and the same sound.

    There's not too much adjusting there, in these 2 languages - usually 2 letters max to form a phoneme, a sound relevant in the given language.

    Swedish does have instances where you need 3 letters to from a sound, like in stjärna (star), where the stj is sh, or even closing to the German ch sound. It's a very peculiar sh sound, though in östsvenska (East Swedish) in Finland, it's said the global way, and I guess the traditional way, because the Northern Swedish tends to use that too. the difficulty is that the have 7 or more ways nowadays t write the sh sound, s the kids are bound to have some problems.

    On the other hand Swedish is very compact: like a word like pil (close to 'peel' pronunciation - though it means arrow. Think it's related to pilum in Latin, the throwing spear, javelin) doesn't neetmore than 1 i letter, though it's siad long. And the short i is realized by the spelling pill, where the Swedes say they hear this longer than in pil. Well, that double ll doubles in function then also, revealing the short i.

    Only a few exception, first coming to my mind is the word man (=English), which would logicallly spelled mann (like in German Mann), and with the article it is: - mannen ('the man').

    And some inconsistancies there are: kort can be said 2 different ways, being 2 different things. maybe the other should be spelled kårt, because so it's said.

    Also, the k in front of i & e, plus ä, ö & y is siad like the (t)ch in English. Well, in the older days, now it's the periphery accents who say it like that (the same ones as use the global sh) - the Stockholm area says it like s mixed with y sound of yes: a sound that the Slavic languages do a lot, or ow the Irish sin was maybe said earlier. Now it's like shin. And because it's the Stockholm version, the capital style, it's winign ground elsewhere too. Though some areas of Sweden are fiercely aware of their local speciality, and hold on to it, treasure it: like Skåne, for example.

    A. No, it doesn't - people are just used to it. We shouldn't bow to Latin as the ultimate truth - it isn't. Of course, it's easier to read when the foreign langauge uses the same letters as your own.

    But the whole point is, that the Irish would benefit for having 2 sets of letters for those that can have a soft and hard sound, like the L, N etc. And 5 vowel letters are just not enough.

    Kit Mooney

    ​No, latin alphabet is enough. Irish is like French, where the orthography is reflective of an older pronunciation, with the silent letters a result of conservation of archaic spelling despite sound changes. Irish orthography, like French, is extremely simplistic and surprisingly consistent. You simply have to get to know how groups of letters are pronounced. The rules don't change that much, unlike in English. I mean, you can say the same things about Irish with French. Why would one need all those other letters in "les œufs?" The u, f and s are all silent. Or in "temps," "trois", "êtes", "faites" where after the first 2-3 letters, everything after is silent? You don't need so many letters to pronounce "malheureusement," or "dutilleul." It's just the way the language has preserved the spelling when all those letters were still pronounced. People are just more used to French than Irish, but they are the same in terms of what is happening.

    Father in heaven God bless us, Father in heaven God bless me wow :)

  37. Arthur Rankin

    Father in Heaven, God help us. 
    Father in Heaven, God help me. 
    My soul, my heart, my voice 
    praise to you, oh God. 

    Long is the day, and peaceful, 
    long is the night without gloom, 
    happiness, joy, love, 
    praise to you, oh God. 

    I praise you from day to day. 
    I praise you night after night. 

    Father in Heaven, God help us. 
    Father in Heaven, God help me. 
    The moon, the sun, the wind, 
    praise be to you, oh God.
