Lyrics

A Íosa, a Íosa, coimeád na caoire
ar na gleannta míne agus ar na móinéir chaoine.
Ní tinneas chun báis ach tinneas chun sláinte
a bheith tinn le grá duit, a Rí na páirte.

Translation (unverified)

Jesus, Jesus, guard Thy sheep
in gentle valleys, meadows mild.
Not sick to death but sick to life
sick with Thy love, O cherished King.
