Ow enev a veurha an Arludh,
ha’m spyrys re omlowenhas yn Duw ow Sylwyas.

Rag ev re viras orth iselder y vaghtethev.
Rag otta alemma rag pub henedow oll a'm gelow benigys.

Rag nep yw gallosek re wrug ow meurhe,
ha sans yw y Hanowev.

Ha'y dregeredh 'ma war an rena eus ort y owna dres pub henedhow oll.

Ev re dhiskwedhas a y vregh.
Ef re dhibarthas an re gothus yn tybyans aga holon.

Evre worras dhe'n leur an grevyon dhywort aga e sedva:
ha re dhrehevis an re uvel ha klor.
Ef re lenwis an re nownek a bythow da:
hag ev re dhanvonas dheves an dus rych gwag aga diwla.
Hag ev ow perthi kov a'y dregeredh,
ev re weresas y was ev Ysrael:
par del ambosas dh'agan hendasow,
Abram ha'y has bys vykken.

Gor dhyans re bo dhe'n Mab ha dhe'n Spyrys Sans.
Kepar del esa y’n dalleth,
yma lemmyn hag y fydh bys vykken,
trank heb worfen. Amen.
