Father of fathers, founder of families, Beli Mawr
who led the great journey, chieftain of the gods,
yours is the battle-flame, the madness of men,
yours are the daring, the far-roaming folk,
yours are the warriors and the farmers, the seekers
of home, the takers of land, the makers of kin
and clan. Beli Mawr who is of the sunny realms
and the shadowed, who walks the wall of the living,
great of might, bright of aspect, comfort of the lost
and the bereft, I call to you with reverence,
and awe, I offer you my words of praise,
O kind and gracious god, I honor you.
