Lyrics

Dóchas linn Naomh Pádraig aspal mór na hÉireann,
Ainm oirearc gléigeal, solas mór an tsaoil é.
D'fhill le soiscéal grá dúinn d'ainneoin blianta i ngéibheann.
Grá mór Mhac na páirte, d'fhuascail cách ón daorbhruid.

Sléibhte, gleannta máighe, 's bailte mór na hÉireann,
 Ghlan sé iad go deo dúinn, míle glóir dár naomh dhil.
 Iarrmaid ort, a Phádraig, guí orainne Gaela,
 Dia linn lá 'gus oíche 's Pádraig Aspal Éireann.

Translation

St. Patrick is our hope
The great apostle of Ireland
A bright and splendid name
The great light of the world
It was he who defeated the druids
Their hard hearts of no good
Brought down the proud
Through the strength of God our powerful lord

The hills, glens and plains
And the towns of Ireland
He cleansed them for ever for us
A thousand glories to our beloved saint
We ask you, Patrick,
To pray for us, Irish
May God be with us day and night
And Patrick apostle of Ireland.
