Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig oraibh go léir
Dóchas linn Naomh Pádraig aspal mór na hÉireann,
Ainm oirearc gléigeal, solas mór an tsaoil é.
D'fhill le soiscéal grá dúinn d'ainneoin blianta i ngéibheann.
Grá mór Mhac na páirte, d'fhuascail cách ón daorbhruid.
Sléibhte, gleannta máighe, 's bailte mór na hÉireann,
Ghlan sé iad go deo dúinn, míle glóir dár naomh dhil.
Iarrmaid ort, a Phádraig, guí orainne Gaela,
Dia linn lá 'gus oíche 's Pádraig Aspal Éireann.
