Transcript: Hymn 113: ‘A Charge to Keep I Have’

Dy hirveish Jee dy jeean,
Shoh’n raaue va currit dou,
Dy yannoo ellan veen,
Dy chiartagh’ ee son niau.

Dy yannoo mie dagh oor,
Myr ta mee gaase ayns eash:
O lhig dooin goaill seose slane E phooar
Ny Mainshteragh dy hirveish.

Cur jeeanid dou dy phrayll,
Dy voddym cosney grayse:
Shickyr, my neem my Hiarn hreigeil,
Dy bragh ayd geddyn baase.
