Natalis of Ulster
Hymn (Tone 2)
Columba as thy guide, thou didst learn the monastic disciplines,
O Father Natalis, and by this example thou dost teach us the necessity
of accepting spiritual direction, that pleasing God by our obedience
we may be found worthy of great mercy.
submitted thyself to a master in pious humility, O Father Natalis,
and being renowned for the sanctity of thy life, thou wast deemed
worthy to guide others into the way of Salvation. Pray that we who
hymn thee may be given grace to submit ourselves to direction, as
Christ willeth, that we may please Him in all things.
