An dubh mu'n gheal, An geal mu'n dubh, An t-uain am meadhon an deirg, An dearg am meadhon an duibh,
An dubh am meadhon an deirg, An dearg am meadhon a ghil, An geal am meadhon an uaine, An t-uaine am meadhon a ghil.
An geal am meadhon a ghuirm, An gorm am meadhon na sgarlaid,

Seachd snathla ri coig, Coig ri tri, Tri ri dha, Dha ri aon, Anns gach oir.
