@domane21, firering, and aelin skywalker (all way down near the bottom): Only Time was my first Enya song, too!
I love her... I cannot even describe my love for her music!!!!! It's so great!!!!
Of Course
a Master Piece from a fine artist.
All hail Lord Jesus Christ and his haven
All hail the Lord Jesus
@Benjamin J. Zhang: It's Irish
@Emma DeVries: This is the translation Enya has on her website

Father in Heaven, God help us.
Father in Heaven, God help me.
My soul, my heart, my voice
praise to you, oh God.

Long is the day, and peaceful,
long is the night without gloom,
happiness, joy, love,
praise to you, oh God.

I praise you from day to day.
I praise you night after night.

Father in Heaven, God help us.
Father in Heaven, God help me.
The moon, the sun, the wind,
praise be to you, oh God
What language is this?
Love the translation! !

Father in Heaven, God bless us
Father in Heaven, God bless me
My soul, my heart, my glory,
praise to you, God.
Long is the peaceful day
Long is the night without gloom
Delight, joy, love,
praise to you, God.
I glorify you day after day.
I glorify you night after night.
Father in Heaven, God bless us
Father in Heaven, God bless me
The moon, the sun, the wind,
praise to you, God.
Love it ... I know it's not popular but I gotta say China Roses hits me the deepest ....
So it's a perfect choice!

Cleansing of the mind and spirit....ne e d e d this refreshment and purging on todays filth from my body and soul....

Ethereal song, I can see why the album got a Grammy award for Best New age album. The title Athair ar Neamh is Irish Gaelic for Father in Heaven and the lyrics are beautifully spiritual.
Absolutely gorgeous.
I wonder what the words translate to though...

This song is so peaceful and I personally like not knowing what the translation is. I feel that it adds a sense of mystery and I focus more on the angelic voice accompanied by the music.
gorgeous piece of music..one of her finest pieces.
Beautiful. Fantastic

IKR! It is beautiful!
Reminiscent of LOTR
So relaxing....
I fell in love with Enya's exquisite music from the very first song I heard from her, Only Time. I absolutely love it.
@random person: I like your description! ! :)
I don't like funerals... But when it's my turn I want Enya to be the music...
Beautiful!

Love this song!
She is awesome. The composer is exquisite. This flows like the wind. I love this music. I ascend to a different level of consciousnes s every time I here this. Absolutely memorizing.
this song makes me think of me floating into the shining clouds and drinking some unpronouncab l e named Asian soup!
