Two English-language settings are given in the publication "Common Ground: A Song Book for All the Churches", published by St Andrew's Press in 1998. One is by James Quinn (1919 - 2010), and the other attributed only to JW (meaning it is not possible to determine when the copyright on it expires from the author's date-of-death).
The tune may have been composed by Seán O Ríada, and is often used in the O'Riada mass.
As the lyrics are still subject to copyright, it is not possible to reproduce them here: the only way you can obtain them is by purchasing a publication that includes them.
"Common Ground" is not listed in St Andrew's Press' on-line bookshop - so may be out of print. However both new and second-hand copies are currently listed on Amazon and Eden.
