@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

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.
