May my soul, my body, and my music
be free from evil and from ignorance.

This half stanza ends a poem in the Metrical Dindshenchas on Mag Luirg. In the last stanza in the version of poem found in the Book of Ballymote the poet turns away from his subject and expresses his wish for himself. I have emended “corp” and “ceol” to show their expected lenition.
