Hiuraibh o, ghridh an tig thu? Hiuraibh o, darling, will you come?

Mo chl ri beanntan na Hearadh My back to the mountains of Harris
M'aghaidh ri fearann na Pairc' My face towards the Park lands
Cianalas a' tigh'nn air m'aire A longing has come over over me
'S gaol mo leannain a' dol bs And my sweetheart's love is fading
   
Chunnaic mis' thu as mo chadal I saw you in my sleep
A' tigh'nn dhachaigh s a' bhlr Coming home from battle
Le do chlaidheamh caol a'lasadh With your slender sword shining
Cha b'ann gam' iarraidh-sa bha But you weren't looking for me
   
Nam biodh dil ri do litir If I expected your letter
Air an t-Sheila oidhche Mhirt To arrive on board the Sheila on Tuesday evening
'S mi nach sgriobhadh sios le ionca I would not write in ink
Fuil mo chridhe, 'si bu bhlith' But in the blood of my heart, for it'd be warmer
