Moylley Gys Jee My Chaarjyn

Manx for Praise to God, My Friends.

lyrics

There are no words collected that I’m aware of, but the sacred nature of the title would suggest that there were some at some point.

See Child Ballads #56, "Dives and Lazarus" for words sung to variants of this tune collected by Childs.
wikipedia.org/wiki/Dives_and_Lazarus_(ballad) discusses other songs set to variations of the tune, including "Star of the County Down" and, interestingly, the early Mormon hymn "If You Could Hie to Kolob".
