Eisd ri ar n-ùrnaigh, Rìgh na Glòir',
Cum sinne treòrach, treun
Mar chum thu ar sinnsirean a thàinig thar chuain
Sàbhailt nad làmhan fhèin.

Measg ghaoithean searbh is shiantan garbh
'S Tusa fear-stiùiridh ar luing'
Leat-sa air bòrd, aotrom a’bhòids'
Gun eagal is Tusa leinn.

Anmoch is tràth, gach oidhche's a latha
'Gad leantainn troimh'n ioma-ghaoith
Ar sùilean ort fhèin, 's Tu ghairm oirnn o chèin
Na dìobair sinn, Dhé, a chaoidh.

Bidh leinne gach là, ar companach tlàth
Gu ruig sinn ar dachaidh bhuan;
Do Iosa ar gràdh, a dh'fhuilig 'nar n-àit'
Bidh glòir gu siorraidh buan.
