  1.  210A-tá an saoghal ag seanmhóir
    ní fhuil ann acht íseal-ghlóir

    ní anann sé acht ag seanmhóir.
  2. An saoghal is síol Eabha
    seanmhóir uile a n-airdheana
    díne don chruinne ag a cur
    líne uirre i n-a n-ionadh.
  3. Go dtí sinn sa slighidh chóir
    ris an saoghal ag seanmhóir
    ní duine do chuaidh tar ceart
    uain acht an uile i n-éin-eacht.

  6. Sgath m'uaille níor fhulair dhamh

  9. Glóir an bheatha bun ós cheann

  10. Feirrde mé méad a áladh
    dá bhféadaim-ne a bhfriothálamh

  11. A-déar re hoighre an Athar
    nach deach meise ar mearachadh
    ná leig uile sinn re sruth
    go gcuire inn it arthruch.
  12. Ó thugais do chneas dá gcionn
    do chách ná fagaibh fuigheall

    cungnamh uaim féin dá bhfaghadh
    mar bhias an Dúileamh réidh rinn
