MERCY: A Dan Direach of Tròcair

Blessed are the merciful-
They are true nobility-
For they shall receive mercy
This is God’s great guarantee

Give it- Never plead for it-
In noble knightly fashion
Cowards are cruel in combat
Courageous show compassion

When we fail in courtly love
May Mercy bear us witness
May Grace prepare her banquet
Where we feast on Forgiveness

Forgive us our debts, o Lord,
As we forgive our debtors
From the letter of the Law
Free us from those forged fetters

Nothing else makes unjust just
No weapon is more useful
For making friends of rivals
Blessed are the merciful
