Guidhim Dia mór


[Gearóid Mac Niocaill, ‘Dhá dhán le Risteard Buitléir’, Éigse 9, 83-88]


Risteard Buitléir cct.


1 Guidhim Dia mór,

mo lón, mo liaigh;

a[i]lim re [a] thaeibh.

a naeimh ’na dhiaigh.


2 Uird aingel Chríst

dom dhín ar olc;

suibhisgél Dé

ná-m-léig a locht.


3 Asbuil mo rígh

go lín a slua[i]gh,

deisgibuil Dia,

dum-fia fa bhuaidh.


4 Martíre in Mhic

dom-lig fó [a] nd(h)ín;

connfesuir, fáidh,

dom dháil don Rí[gh].


5 Fea[dh]bha is uird ógh

a luirg Dhé mhóir,

’s na huile naemh:

dom-shaer na slóigh.


6 Trócuire Chríst,

dom dhín, ’s a fhuil;

a chroch-sa nae(i)mh

’na hae(i)n rom-ghuidh. Guidhim.


7 Máth[a]ir Mhic Dhé,

Dia fé[i]n na nd(h)úil,

is Míchél mór,

mo lón gan ghú. Guidhim.
