Columcille (Columba) of Derry and Iona
Hymn (Tone 5)
Thy God-inspired life thou didst embody both the mission and the
dispersion of the Church, most glorious Father Columcille. Using
thy repentence and voluntary exile, Christ our God raised thee up
as a beacon of the True Faith, an Apostle to the heathen and an
indicator of the Way of salvation. Wherefore, O holy one, cease
not to intercede for us that our souls may be saved.
