A Íosa, Glan mo Chroíse

Boys choir with organ, professional recording:


A Íosa, glan mo chroíse
Go gléghlan gach lá,
 A Íosa, cuir m’intinn
Faoi léirsmacht do ghrá.

 Déan mo smaointe go fíorghlan agus briathra mo bhéil,
 Is a Thiarna, ’Dhia dhílis,
Stiúraigh choíche mo shaol.


Jesus, cleanse my heart each day and make it spotless Jesus, rule my mind by the power of your love. Make truly clean my thoughts and the words of my mouth, and, dear Lord God, direct my life now and forever.
