5.19 What is the origin of the poem at the beginning of "Celtic Sonnant"?

The first three lines:

Deep peace of the running wave to you
Deep peace of the flowing air to you
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you

are from a translation (copyright 1994) by Caitlin Matthews of a traditional Gaelic prayer. This prayer was also used as the basis of a song called "Deep Peace" on Donovan's CD, Sutras.
