Transcript: Hymn 27: ‘Death Cannot Make our Souls Afraid’

Cha beem’s ayns aggle geddyn baase
Maryms my vees my Yee;
Hem trooid y choan fegooish angaaish,
Ny aggle trome erbee.

Cha reill yn seihll er son dy bra
Ec sarey Chreest trooid grayse:
As roie, my yinnagh eh rhym gra,
Myr Moses eisht yoin baase.

Dy voddin fakin ayns my chree
Yn ghloyr ta kiarit dou;
Jeh’n seihll, as dagh nhee t’ayn veign skee,
Veign booiagh cosney voue.

Goit seose ayns ronnaghyn my Yee,
My annym veagh ec aash:
As ragh my vioys voym ayns shee,
O s’maynrys veagh my vaase!
