Lyrics

Bí, Íosa, im chroíse i gcuimhne gach uair,
Bí, Íosa, im chroíse le haithrí go luath
Bí, Íosa, im chroíse le cumann go buan
ó, a íosa 'Dhé dhílis, ná scar Thusa uaim.

Gan íosa mo smaointe ní thaithníonn liom féin,
Gan íosa mo scríbhinn ná foghar mo bhéil,
Gan íosa mo ghníomhartha ní maith insan tsaol,
ó, a íosa 'Dhé dhílis, bí romham is am dhéidh.

Sé íosa mo ríse, mo chara 's mo ghrá,
Sé íosa mo dhídean ar pheaca 's ar bhás,
Sé íosa mo aoibhneas, mo scáthán do ghnáth,
A's, a íosa, 'Dhé dhilis, ná scar uaim go bráth.

Bí, a íosa, go síoraí im chroí is im bhéal,
Bí, a íosa, go síoraí im thuigse mar an gcéann',
Bí, a íosa, go síoraí im mheabhair mar léann,
ó, a íiosa, 'Dhé dhílis, ná fág mé liom féin.



Rough translation

Be, Jesus, in my heart in memory every hour,
Be, Jesus, in my heart with speedy repentance,
Be, Jesus, in my heart with everlasting fellowship
O, Jesus, true/faithful God, don't depart from me

Without Jesus my thoughts don't illuminate me,
Without Jesus my scripture doesn't sound from my mouth
Without Jesus my deeds do no good in life
O Jesus, faithful God, be before me and after/behind me.

Jesus is my king, my friend and my love
Jesus is my shelter from sin and death
Jesus is my delight, my constant mirror
Ah Jesus, faithful God, never part from me.

Be, Jesus, eternally in my heart and in my mouth
Be, Jesus, eternally in my understanding and my head,
Be, Jesus, eternally in my mind and my learning,
O Jesus, faithful God, don't leave me alone.
