[Rannaíocht Mhór, Dán Díreach]


1 Día do bheatha a abhluinn á(i)n

as tú beatha ár n-anma a úa(i)n

dia do bheatha a Rí(gh) na ríogh

fá dhíon mo chlí a bheatha bhua(i)n.

2 Tú an bheatha naoidhe nách nua(dh)

tú beatha ár ndaoine ’s ár nDia

dia do bheatha a bheatha bheó

beatha gan cheó an bheatha a mbia.

3 A mhic Muire gedh mac mná

dá mbeith gan luíghe fán lia

ní fiú an uile bhúr n-eacht r(i)ú

tú ag teacht ad dhuine ’s ad Dhia.
