“On the other side of the (prison) door there was no sun
There was no food and there was no wine”
But the day of release has now arrived
Like a flood, like a bird on the wing

“Keep your eyes open and listen”
There is a well of riches at the Feis
Our children today, with the voices of yesterday
Champions of youth, with joy, with respect

I have no worries now
A new era has risen up
From a bleak and an arid wilderness

She is lovely, she is beautiful
She is strong, she is golden


Taobh cul an dorais cha robh grian
Cha robh biadh is cha robh fion
Tha la' an t-saoradh neist air tighinn
Mar tuil, mar eun air sgiath

Cum a mach do shuil is eisd
Tha tobar shaibhreas aig an fheis
Ar clann an-diugh, le guth an de
Gasgaich og, le mire, le speis

Sona 'drasd 'tha mi
'S mi gun uallach bhon a' ghreun
Lin ur a tighinn gu bi
'Mach a fasach lom is tiorram

Thai I ladir, tha I orach
