Lyrics: English Translation:
   
Thoir tiodhlac aost Take an old gift
Deir mthar ghlan A mother's pure tears
Is Th ta cmhnaidh And He is living
Am maise nur latha In the beauty of your day
   
Sist: Chorus (after each verse):
Trobhadaidh is leanamaid Come and let us follow
Dithis na bainnse mu chuairt an t-sluaigh The bridal couple among their guests
Snibh sligh is dannsaibh gu crch Stretch their path and dance until the end
Trobhadaidh is leanamaid Come and let us follow
Dithis na bainnse mu chuairt an t-sluaigh The bridal couple among their guests
   
Thoir tiodhlac r Take a new gift
Latha do sheanmhar, glaist' Your grandmother's day, locked
Anns na h-rdaibh In the heavens
A' tilleadh le mle bidh Returning with endless hospitality
   
Thoir tiodhlac 'r iasad Take a borrowed gift
Bhon sgthan uaine igh From the green mirror of his soul
Aisling oighreachd A vision of his heritage
Ann an sil do ghridh In the eye of your love
   
Thoir tiodhlac ghorm Take a blue gift
Cuan ciin gun trigh A calm, shoreless ocean
Is igh na mara And the young maiden of the sea
Na siil, bhur taghadh In her sails, your choice
   
Thi ta cmhnaidh anns na h-rdaibh He who is living in the heavens
Sil do ghridh air igh na mara The eye of your love on the young maiden of the sea
