I Follow a Star by Seosamh Mac Cathmhaoil

I follow a star
Burning deep in the blue,
A sign on the hills
Lit for me and for you!
Moon-red is the star,
Halo-winged like a rood,
Christ's heart in its heart set,
Streaming with blood.
Follow the gilly
Beyond to the west;
He leads where the Christ lies
On Mary's white breast.
King, priest, and prophet—
A child, and no more—
Adonai the Maker!
Come, let us adore.
