 Cumaibh suas a, suas a suas i;
 Cumaibh suas a' Ghàidhlig

1. Deoch slàint' nan daoine furanach
 Na Gàidheil rìoghail urramach
 Tha cruinn a nochd mar bhuineadh dhaibh,
 De dhuinealas gur làn iad.

2. Na daoine calma, cruadalach
 A leag a' choille ghruamach dhuinn
 Bu churaidhnean's daoin' uasal iad
 Nan gluasad is nan nàdar.
