Christmas Carols - Wexford Carol

Gaelic (Irish Gaelic)

Wexford Carol

Ó, tagaig' uile is adhraigí
An leanbh cneasta sa chró 'na luí
Is cuimhnígí ar ghrá an Rí
A thug dár saoradh anocht an Naí.
'S a Mhuire Mháthair i bParrthas Dé,
Ar chlann bhocht Éabha guigh 'nois go caomh,
Is doras an chró ná dún go deo
Go n-adhram' feasta Mac Mhuire Ógh.
 
I mBeithil thoir i lár na hoích'
Ba chlos an deascéala d'aoirí,
Go follas don saol ón spéir go binn
Bhí aingle 'canadh ó rinn go rinn.
"Gluaisig' go beo," dúirt Aingeal Dé,
"Go Beithil sall is gheobhaidh sibh É
'Na luí go séimh i mainséar féir,
Siúd É an Meisias a ghráigh an saol."

Added video.

well, at least the new video plays. But sadly only the first 4 lines suhg in the video are in Irish and the rest is in English, and the first 2 lines sung in the video are not quite the same as they are in the text here.
The sung line1 has "taigigi" not "taigig' uile"; and the sung line 2 has "Críosta", not "cneasta".

It would be nice to have a video which sings 16 Gaelic lines instead of just 4, but I don't know of one.

I went through many videos looking.
