Prayers over my children

Prayer I whisper over my sleeping children
Go raibh beannacht na ndéithe agus ár sinsir ar an mo chlann seo. Go gcumhdaí is dtreoraí na déithe thú. Sidh go neimh, Neimh go domhan, Domhan fo neimh, Neart í gcách. 
*To a fluent/native speaker this is probably a bit off. I'd be curious to what corrections should be made. Feel free to leave suggestions.

"may the Gods and ancestors bless my children. May the Gods guard and guide you. Peace up to heavens, heavens down to earth, earth under heavens, strength in all."
