Lyrics

Gabhaim molta Bríde,
Ionmhain i le hEirinn,
Ionmhain le gach tir i
Molaimis go léir i.

Lóchrann geal na Laighneach
A’ soilsiú feadh na tire,
Ceann ar óoghaibh Éireann
Ceann na mban ar mine.

Tig an eimhreadh dian dubh
'Ggearradh lena ghéire
Ach ar lá ’le Bríde
Gar dúinn earrach Éireann.


Translation

I pay homage to Saint Brigid
Beloved in Ireland,
Beloved in all countries,
Let us all praise her.

The bright torch of Leinster
Shining throughout the country.
The pride of Irish youth
The pride of our gentle women.

The house of winter is very dark
Cutting with its sharpness.
But on Saint Brigid's Day
Spring is near to Ireland.
