Nach mis' tha gu trom,
Glas chiambaig nam cheann,
Tha mi brist', tha mi aonranach brònach,
Oir tha màthair mo chloinn,
Bean-ghaoil is mo mhnaoi,
Anns a' chladh air an Aoidh fo na fòidean

Cha thuig duine gu bràth,
Meud mo mhulaid 's mo chràdh,
Tha mo chlann air am fàgail gun mhàthair
Chan eil madainn no oidhch'
Nach bi mi ga caoigh:
Air a son shil mi deòirean gun nàire

Tha mi cinnteach, a luaidh,
Gu bheil thu 'm Pàrras ud shuas,
Tha na dh' thuiling thu nis air do chùlaibh
Gus an dùin mi mo shùil,
Anns a' chadal nach dùisg,
Gad ' ionndrainn bi mi, is toirt cliù dhuit.

Nach mis' tha gu trom,
Glas chiambaig nam cheann,
Tha mi brist', tha mi aonranach brònach,
Oir tha màthair mo chloinn,
Bean-ghaoil is mo mhnaoi,
Anns a' chladh air an Aoidh fo na fòidean

    TranslationMy heart is heavy,
    My hair is turning grey,
    I am broken, lonely and sad,
    For the mother of my children,
    The woman I loved, my wife,
    Lies buried in the graveyard at Eye.

    No-one could ever understand,
    The extent of my grief and pain,
    My children have been left motherless,
    No morning or night passes,
    Without my lamenting her:
    Without embarrassment, I have shed tears for her

    I am certain, my love,
    That you are in Paradise above:
    All you suffered is now behind you,
    Until I close my eyes,
    In eternal slumber,
    I will miss you, and praise you.

    With thanks to nahoo.org.uk!
