Aithin mé dot oide a Eoin, Aoidhe meise ag máthair Dé, Cairt a síothchána ag síol Adhaimh, Cia ghabhas m'anmain ré ais

Beag nach táinig mo théarma, Iomdha ród díreach go Dia, Mairg danab soirbh an saoghal, Atá sinn ar slighidh síodh

Ag so brágha dheit a Dhé , Déanadh Chríosd comhairle a mháthar Gabh m'éagnach a Eoin Baisde, Fearg an Choimdheadh re cloinn Ádhaimh

A-tú i gcogadh rem chairdibh, Teachtaire díleas ag Dia, Tagair red Mhac a Mhuire Beag nar dhearmadas mo dhúthaigh

Trom an suan-so ar síol Ádhaimh A dhuine chaitheas corp Dé, Déanam cionntughadh na colla, Mór grádh Dé do na daoinibh

Cara na héigne Íosa,

Mairg nach tathaigh na trátha,
Gabham deachmhaidh ar ndána
Éisdidh re marbhnaidh Meic Dhé
Dia dom fheitheamh ar fheirg Dhé
Lóchrann soillse ag síol Adhaimh
Aithrighe sunn duid a Dhé
A Mhuire mhór
Uasal céad-obair an Choimdheadh
