Gracious Be Binn, woman of strength, woman of worth,
O radiant one, of life’s melody you know much.
Many are the tales told of you and yours, Be Binn;
many the bards who sought to sing of your beauty
and your courtesy, yet none could tell it true,
so fair you are, unbearably fair. Many too,
O goddess, the women of Eire who bore your name,
so strong the ties that bind you to that land.
You are with us when we enter this world, O goddess;
you are with us when we step into the next.
Be Binn, companion on our long, dear journey,
I seek your wisdom, I seek your blessing.
