Prayer of St Colmcille – Feast day 9th June  Lord, Thou art my island; in Thy bosom I rest. Thou art the calm of the sea; in that peace I stay. Thou art the deep waves of the shining ocean. With their eternal sound I sing. Thou art the song of the birds; in that tune is my joy. Thou art the smooth white strand of the shore; in Thee is no gloom. Thou art the breaking of the waves on the rock; Thy praise is echoed in the swell. Thou art the Lord of my life.
