Caoineadh ar bhás Mhichil Bhreathnaigh

(I)
Is dubhach an sgeal 'gainn
Indiu i nÉirinn
Is tú a mhúirnín
Id' luighe fao'n bhfód
A chroidhe ba Ghaedhealaighe

A mhaoin mo chléibhe
Is a mhíle stór

(II)

Ní cloisfear feasta
An guth ba chneasta
Is ba bhinne glór
'S a Dhia nach mairg é
An taoiseach gheanamhail
Na luighe chois fhairrge
Mo bhrón, mo brón

(III)
Cé dubh ár smaointe
Ar do thuamba sínte
'Sé rún ar gcroidhe dhuit
Gach uair sa ló
I dtír na saoirre
Go bheictear choidhche
Ar deis laimh Íosa
