Dooisht oo, dooisht oo; cur mood dty niart, O Zion, cur mood dty gharmadyn aalin, O Yerusalem, yn ard-valley casherick: veih shoh magh cha jig ny smoo stiagh aynyd's ny chymmyltee as y neu-ghlen.

Awake, awake; put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city: for henceforth there shall no more come into thee the uncircumcised and the unclean.


Crie oo hene veih'n joan; trog ort, as soie sheese er dty stoyl-reeoil, O Yerusalem: feayshil geulaghyn dty wannal, O inneen chappee Zion.

Shake thyself from the dust; arise, and sit down, O Jerusalem: loose thyself from the bands of thy neck, O captive daughter of Zion.


Son myr shoh ta'n Chiarn gra, Ta shiu er ve creckit nastee; as bee shiu er ny chionnaghey reesht fegooish argid.

For thus saith the Lord, Ye have sold yourselves for nought; and ye shall be redeemed without money.


Son myr shoh ta'n Chiarn Jee dy ghra, Hie my phobble sheese traa dy row gys Egypt er nyn yoarreeaght; as ren yn Assyrian tranlaase orroo gyn oyr.

For thus saith the Lord God, My people went down aforetime into Egypt to sojourn there; and the Assyrian oppressed them without cause.

Now therefore, what have I here, saith the Lord, that my people is taken away for nought? they that rule over them make them to howl, saith the Lord; and my name continually every day is blasphemed.


Shen-y-fa bee enney ec y pobble er my ennym: shen-y-fa yiow ad fys er y laa shen dy nee mish mee hene eh ta loayrt; cur-my-ner, she mish eh.

Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore they shall know in that day that I am he that doth speak: behold, it is I.

How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth


Nee ny arreyderyn ayd's troggal seose nyn goraa; lesh yn un choraa nee ad kiaulleeaght: son hee ad y cheilley sooill ry sooill, tra ver y Chiarn lesh Zion dy valley reesht.

Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when the Lord shall bring again Zion.


Brish-jee magh ayns boggey, gow-jee lesh yn arrane dy cheilley, shiuish ynnydyn faase Yerusalem: son ta'n Chiarn er gherjaghey e phobble, t'eh reesht er livrey Jerusalem:

Break forth into joy, sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem: for the Lord hath comforted his people, he hath redeemed Jerusalem.


Ta'n Chiarn er roostey e roih casherick ayns shilley ooilley Dy ashoonee; as nee dy chooilley ard sodjey magh jeh'n theihll cur-my-ner saualtys yn Jee ain.

The Lord hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.


Scugh-jee, scugh-jee, reue-jee magh veih shen, ny benn-jee rish yn red neu-ghlen; tar-jee magh veih ny mast' eck, bee-jee glen ta gymmyrkey siyn y Chiarn.

Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the Lord.


Son cha jed shiu magh ayns siyr, ny roie er-chea: son hed y Chiarn rhymbiu; as bee Jee Israel fendeilagh er nyn gooyl.

For ye shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight: for the Lord will go before you; and the God of Israel will be your rereward.
