En levra coth po vo Tour Babel gwres
Scriffas, Gomar mab Japhet vo en Beas
Ha Dotha Tavaz Kornooack vo Res.

Lebbn (Ellis lebben) duath Tavaz coth ny en Kernow
Rag kar ny Jenkins gelles durt an Pow
Vor hanow taz ny en Eue tha Canow.

Descans ony gen hemma, an Brossa es
Desces en Tavazow, ha dorha Brez
Ha Pedn ffeera ha Moy Skeeans Res.

Ancho vedn gweel an Dean eu wella
Cotha dadn Daor pokare an Ezella
Meer a Kol-Ry termen them tha Hoola.
