An ainm Spiorad Naomh nan gras An ainm Athar na Cathrach aigh, An ainm Iosa thug dhinn am bas, O! an ainm na Tri tha d' ar dion's gach cas, Ma's math a fhuair thu sinn an nochd, Seachd fearr gum fag thu sinn gun lochd, A Ghealach gheal nan trath, A Ghealach gheal nan trath.


In name of the Holy Spirit of grace In name of the Father of the City of peace, In name of Jesus who took death off us, Oh! in name of the Three who shield us in every need, If well thou hast found us to-night, Seven times better mayest thou leave us without harm, Thou bright white Moon of the seasons, Bright white Moon of the seasons.

The following versification is by Mr John Henry Dixon, Inveran :-
In name of the Father Almighty, In name of the Glorious Son, In name of the Holy Spirit, By grace of the Three-in-One.
If to-night, 0 moon, thou hast found us In peaceful, happy rest, May thy laving lustre leave us Seven times still more blest.
0 moon so fair, May it be so, As seasons come, And seasons go.
