As I stood on Carraig - mo - Cléir,
And gazed along that vale,
With its golden coloured copious,
And emerald - tinted dale.
Such various scenes of beauty,
My eyes have ne'er looked on,
As those which I have met with
At the foot of Sliabh - na - mban

The sun with lustrous softness
'Shone on the evening air,
Pouring its lightning floods
Along that valley fair.
Its rays like golden arrows
Their rapid flight winged on,
And spread a sparkling lustre
Oer the breast of Sliabh - na - mban.
