It looks like Fiolar was submitting his response as I was typing mine. I notice that I screwed up the last verse which is different to Fiolar's." The more the merrier'.

O'Lachlainn got this version from his friend Benedict Kiely ( A.K.A. Patrick Lagan of teh irish Press)

And looking up unto the Lord
He says " O Lord receive"
Here is my soul,I do bestow
My body unto the grave
That it may rest in peace and joy
Without the least surprise
'Till Michael sounds his
And says " Ye dead arise".
