Téann sé leis an ngaoth,

Tagann s'e ar na dtonnta.

Comhlíonann sé mo ghuí

Nuair a ghlaochaim i ndoircheacht na hoíche:  

Nochtar é sa tús san leanbh nua bheirthe,

Maireann sé sa chríoch ar scaradh anam is coirp;

Suan, suan, suan, codhlaím go súan, a Íosa;

Suan, suan, suan, codhlaím go sámh id' chroí.    

Do sharú níl ann ar throicaireacht nó grá,

Ní féidir do chumhacht a thuiscint.

Is tusa mo mhuinteoir s'treoraí, codhlaím go suan id' chroí.


He comes with the wind, 

He goes on the waves.

He hears my prayer,

When I call him in the darkest moment of the night.

I sleep softly in your heart my Christ.

Naked he stands at the dawn in the new-born child

He is there at the end as the soul parts from the body.

There is no one so full of mercy and love,

There is no way to understand your goodness.

 You are my teacher and guide, I sleep softly In your heart.
