Raise up your hunting spear
With which we injured the white deer
Raise up your hunting spear
When we were at war
We did not fast on our journey
Raise up your hunting spear

Sail the round hulls of your ships
To the barren lands of Lochlainn...

With our great lances
We killed slow Raighne
Raise up your hunting spear
When we were at war
We did not fast on our journey
Raise up your hunting spear

Sail the round hulls of your ships
To the barren lands of Lochlainn...

Raise up your hunting spear
With which we injured the white deer
Raise up your hunting spear
When we were at war
We did not fast on our journey
Raise up your hunting spear

Sail the round hulls of your ships
To the barren lands of Lochlainn...
