[Deibhidhe, Dán Díreach]


1 Ben glas dom croidi a Coimge

foir me a Mhic ar Sethar-ne

na leig gan aithrighe ind

maithfidhe deit do dlighfinn.

2 Os?gail (d)e (?) go ndernainn deir

mairg fuair a n-oighreacht eisein

mar séad fine fuair misi

an croidh[e] cruaidh cloichi-si.

3 Rotrom codlus mo croidhe

mosgail e rem aithridhe

a-tám i dtoirrchim co trom

’s gan oirchill agam.[word missing]

4 An da deirc le ndearna me

do mireir a Mic Mure

tabhair maithridhe [leg. -mhighe?] a Dhe dhaibh

go ré aithridhe d’fagáil.
