  1. Éisdidh re marbhnaidh Meic Dhé
    dá creic ar talmhain go dtí
    is tocrádh mór marbhnadh Dé
    ní hé an brón gan adhbhur í.
  2. A thruagha tabhraidh bhar n-óidh
    re marbhnaidh as cuanna ad-chídh
    marbhnat Dé ní treabhadh tnúidh
    garmac dúinn é dleaghar dhínn.
  3. Dleaghar dhínn marbhnadh truagh taoi
    dá ghruadh gé ro marbhadh mé
    ní marbhnat gan achain í
    mo Rí is m'Athair dagh-Mhac Dé.
  4. A lucht an talmhan is truagh
    bhar n-amhladh ar ucht bhar Ríogh
    ionnsa a dhaoine toll 'n-a thaobh
    laogh na bronn saoire is a síol.
  5. Ionnsa treaghdadh a thaoibh ghil
    ionnsa dhaoibh a dheargadh sein
    mór gcneadh ar Mac Moire a-muigh
    brat d'fhuil a chroidhe fá chneidh.  p.52
  6. Ionnsa a throigh im thairnge bhfuar
    ag a ghoin níor ghairbhe pian
    dearna an Choimdheadh im chló ngéar
    sgéal as mhó dá roinneadh riamh.
  7. Dearg a throigh i dtarrla an seim
    an doigh as damhna dom dhoirr.
    dearg a lámh as lámh nar thuill
    dealg tré n-a dhruim i gclár croinn.
  8. Ro b'é a huan-orc Rí na ríogh
    cuanort ar a thí fa truagh
    níor fhead a ionghuire an ógh
    's níor thréad mór d'fhionn-Mhuire a huan.
  9. Ionmhuin uan nar fhás ó mhnaoi
    do bhás go truagh ar a thí
    aithbhidh an meabhail Mac Dé
    gion gur bhac Sé d' fhearaibh í.
  10. Is me a-déaradh do ghuth ghaoth
    re cruth nDé ar ndéanamh mo thráth
    gé aithne oirne gan fhíoch
    do dhíoth aithbhe a choimhghe ar chách.
  11. Ceart do na daoinibh fa dú
    a neart tar maoidhimh gidh mó
    fíoch 'ma dhíoth gá dluigh do Dhia
    cia 'gá bhfuil fíoch fá dhíoth dhó.
  12. Dámadh cóir ag agra fhiach
    ré n-agra ní fóil an fáth
    muna loghtha Dia dá dhíoth
    ní bhia síoth a chrochtha ag cách.
  13. Do reac Dia a chorp tar mo cheann
    mun ba lia mh'olc is gach am
    Dia gé ro crochadh dom chionn
    dar liom ní bhia mh'othar ann.
  14. Gá fios fós nach fuighbheam neamh
    dá bhfuilngeam nós bhus nós glan
    ní shaoil mé m'obadh don fhior
    's gan chion i gcogar Dé dhamh.
  15. Saoilim ris maitheamh mh'olc uadh
    madh ris caithear mo chorp criadh
    mo cholann dó gion gur díol
    síodh as mhó oram ní iarr.
  16. Ná táirthear mh'anam féin faoi
    nó go rabham do réir Dé
    ní ar mo Dhúileamh do ním ní
    dá dtí dom Rígh múineadh mé.
  17. Sbéis i dtagadh is dall dúnn
    a n-abar ann dámadh fíor
    cuma gan mo chradh go mór
    lór a thruma dhamh ré dhíol.
  18. Ní bhí an saoghal acht fa seach
    baoghal don chlí ris nach crioth
    téid mar théid sruthán i sruth
    uchán uch do bhréig an bioth.
  19. Mo ghlór re Dia is treabhadh taoi
    cia an slógh dar cneadhadh do chlí
    a phríomh-achain duid a Dhé
    ní thuig mé a fhíor-Athair í.
  20. Tabhair a gnúis Dé ba dheacht
    gidh clé an chúis laghaidh don lucht
    sluagh na sé n-aimsear ar th'iocht
    i riocht Dé do h-aimseadh th'ucht.

    cuanna ar n-a threaghdadh a thaobh
    ag cealgadh craobh uadha d'fhíon.
  23. Fuighleam re Dia is fuigheall faoi
    re Dia ad-chluineann is do-chí
    th'fhíon-fhuil mar dhlighim a Dhé
    íobhaidh mé go hinill í.
