AS I CAME OVER THE GREY, GREY HILLS, by             Poet's Biography
Last Line: And the golden light is glowing!
Alternate Author Name(s): Ultach; Maccathmhaoil, Seosamh
Subject(s): Jesus Christ


AS I came over the grey, grey hills
And over the grey, grey water,
I saw the gilly leading on,
And the white Christ following after.

Where and where does the gilly lead?
And where is the white Christ faring?
They've travelled the four grey sounds of Orc,
And the four grey seas of Eirinn.

The moon is set and the wind's away,
And the song in the grass is dying,
And a silver cloud on the silent sea
Like a shrouding-sheet is lying.

But Christ and the gilly will follow on
Till the ring in the east is showing,
And the awny corn is red on the hills,
And the golden light is glowing!
