Irish Music?

Greetings! I would love to further immerse myself in Irish culture and the Irish Language, and with Spanish it was very useful to sing along to songs. Does the Irish Language have any Christian music or worship music that I could listen to? I've looked but I guess I just don't know how to search. I've found a lot of "Irish music" in English or instrumental, but I would like lyrics please :)

Thanks for any and all help!

Cén fath nach bhfuil tú ag éisteach leis an raidió as gaeilge? Tá Raidió na Gaeltachta ar www.rte.ie go hiontach! Agus tá siad ag seinm amhráin as Gaeilge gach lá. :)

These weren't particularly Christian songs, but they had Christmas Songs, and some traditional hymns. Hope this helps!

A quick Web search revealed this site, which has lyrics and sheet music. I don’t know if recordings are also present.

I can't read Irish or music, so I'm definitely looking for recordings, thanks!
