Tyler-

'Mo Cridhe'- I guess is Heart(now Croí)
Anam is soul.

So it is this 'I hold/give my heart and my soul....

'mi baith' has me stumped!! Maybe someone else can help?

If I had to guess I would say 'I Give(surrender??) my heart and soul without fear.'

Does that fit the context?

Maybe it is possible that Bhaith might be an old spelling of Maith?

Mí-Bhaith could mean no good or worthless?
As in Ceart and Mí-cheart? right and wrong?

I surrender my heart and worthless soul?

I found this on Google in Scottish Gaelic

Air sgath na chunna mi,
Do shith is d'a bhaigh,
Tog m' anam riut, a Mhic De,
Na treig mi gu brath.

The tranlation is

Because of all that I have seen,
Of His peace and of His mercy,
Lift Thou my soul to Thee, O Son of God,
Nor leave me ever.

Baith here seems to mean mercy. I think your words might be scottish Gaelic-not Irish Gaelic
