    acht do chor an cheana ar gcúl
    taobh ria is éigean dá gach aon
    ná léigear taobh re Dia dhún.
  30. Is í áiridhe as fhearr dhamh
    is í ar gceann báidhei-ne an bhean
    is fiú ise ar mbeith sa bhrugh
    gan mise ag cur neith ar neamh.
  31. Muire muna thaobhar trá
    baoghal a luighe fa lia
    ó rinn deilg do dháil a chrú
    a-tú mar láimh ndeirg ag Dia.
    Aoidhe.
