Lyrics: English Translation:
   
'S mor an leasan seo a thuigisinn It's a great lesson to understand
Gur e dchas neamhnaid gheal gun phrs That hope is a priceless and precious white pearl
An uair a thig na gathan fuara When those cold winds come in
A bhriseadh bhalla-din ar sth Which would breach the protective wall of our peace
   
Chan eagal duinn' nuair chithear boillsgeadh So that we need not fear when we catch a glimpse
De sgthan dubh' aig oir ar fianais Of dark storm clouds at the edge of our vision
A togail crs' a steach dhar n-ionnsaigh Mapping a course in our direction
Le tuil ro-throm an cridh' a' linadh With floods so heavy as to fill our hearts
   
Soraidh sln ri saoghal dorcha Fond farewell to a dark old world
Agus filte mhr gu dachaigh r And welcome to a brand new home
Steach gu tearmann shbhailt lainn Into a safe and beautiful sanctuary
A thogar suas na mheadhon gaoil Built up as a means of love
   
Fi 's a staigh am broinn an fhsgaidh Even inside this shelter safe
Tha obair nuadh an seo ri dheanamh There's a new work here to do
A' cumail glan gach semar smhach Keeping clean each quiet room
Bho thruailleadh inntinn fuairmean crinaidh From mind-pollution and the sounds of decay
   
'S mor am feum a staigh nar n-igne It's so important inside our minds
Bhith glanadh plaide throm eu-dchais To wash the heavy sheet of disheartedness
A sgradh as gach uile shalchar Washing out each and every pollution
Le din bho'n cridhe laoidhean slais With songs from the heart and hymns of hope
   
'S tidhlac thalaideach gun phrs e It is an alluring gift without price
Tha feathamh oirnn mar ni ar spirn Which awaits us if we make haste
Duil a dhireas faid na stidhre A hope which will climb the full length of the stairs
Gar toirt gu tioram gu ar dn To bring us safely to our destiny
   
Soraidh sln ri saoghal dorcha Fond farewell to a dark old world
Agus filte mhr gu dachaigh r And welcome to a brand new home
Steach gu tearmann shbhailt lainn Into a safe and beautiful sanctuary
A thogar suas na mheadhon gaoil Built up as a means of love
   
Soraidh sln ri saoghal dorcha Fond farewell to a dark old world
Agus filte mhr gu dachaigh r And welcome to a brand new home
Steach gu tearmann shbhailt lainn Into a safe and beautiful sanctuary
A thogar suas na mheadhon gaoil Built up as a means of love
