LYRICS

Bi, a iosa, im chroise i gcuimhne gach uair
Bi, a iosa, im chroise le haithri go luath
Bi, a iosa, im chroise le cumann go buan

O, a iosa ‘Dhe dhilis, na scar Thusa uaim

Gan iosa mo smaointe ni thaithnionn liom fein
Gan iosa mo scribhinn na foghar mo bheil
Gan iosa mo ghniomhartha nil maith in san tsaol

O, a iosa ‘Dhe dhilis, bi romham is am dheidh

Se iosa mo rise mo chara ‘s mo ghra
Se iosa mo dhidean ar pheaca ‘s ar bhas
Se iosa mo aoibhneas mo scathan do ghnath

A’s, a iosa ‘Dhe dhilis, na scar uaim go brath

Bi, a iosa, go siorai im chroi is im bheal
Bi, a iosa, go siorai im thuigse mar an gceann’
Bi, a iosa, go siorai im mheabhair mar leann

O, a iosa ‘Dhe dhilis, na fag me liom fein

MEANING

English translation:

Be, O Jesus, remembered in my heart every hour
Be, O Jesus, in my heart (?) soon
Be, O Jesus, in my heart with (?) forever

O, Jesus of God faithful, don’t separate yourself from me

Without Jesus in my thoughts I’m not happy in myself
Without Jesus in my writing don’t (?) my mouth
Without Jesus in my actions there’s no good in life

O, Jesus of God faithful, be before and after me

Jesus is my king my friend my love
Jesus is my shelter from sin and death
Jesus is my happiness my mirror (?)

Ah and, O Jesus of God faithful, don’t ever be apart from me

Be, O Jesus, eternally in my heart and in (?) mouth
Be, O Jesus, eternally in my understanding all the time
Be, O Jesus, eternally in my mind as instruction

O, Jesus of God faithful, don’t leave me by myself
