Prayer to the Ancestors

I have chanted your names each Samhain as is my duty.
I have offered thanksgiving gifts for the births of my children, as is only right.
I have not forgotten where I come from, and have kept the old ways, as is only proper.
I therefore turn in confidence to you, spirits of my Ancestors,
and ask your protection for my family and all its property.
