O tiugainn leam, o mo dhuine uasail Oh come with me, my noble man
O tiugainn leam, o mo dhuine uasail Oh come with me, my noble man
Is laighibh sos comhla ruinn And lie down with us
Is laighibh sos comhla ruinn And lie down with us
Air leabaidh Naoimh Aula On the bed of Saint Aula
Air leabaidh Naoimh Aula On the bed of Saint Aula

O tiugainn leam, o mo dhuine uasail Oh come with me, my noble man
Is laighibh sos comhla ruinn And lie down with us
Air leabaidh Naoimh Aula On the bed of Saint Aula
   
Bha na lithean a' fs beagan fuar The days were growing a little colder
'S bha lus-an-eallain a' falach fo chreig chruaidh And the plants hid from you beneath hard rock
Chuir thu marbhfhaisg ort, d'ideadh r You put on your shroud, a new robe to you
Oir thinig foghar nam ban brid gheal As the harvest of young widows had come
   
Bha am feasgar a' fs fionnar is rach The evening grew crisp and golden
Chroch an solus seud le drainn is brn But the jewel light hung in anguish and sorrow
Chunna mi'n t-it seo le silean geur 's ln brgh I saw this place with sharp eyes, full of substance
Is dh'iarr a' mhuir a bhi gad thadhal, a' sleadh bho d'chridh' And the sea longed to be restored to you, pouring from the heart
   
Bha an oidhche a' fs fad' is dorch' The night grew long and dark
Bidh ar cuimhneachan as treasa gad lorg But searching for you our memories will color much deeper
Cm nad chuimhne ar gaol 'fhir nam buadh Keep our love in your thoughts, man of accomplishments
'S o cadal stheil dhut gu brth fo sgeith nan sluagh And sleep peacefully forever under the wing of the villagers
   
Ho ro hug eile Ho ro hug eile
Ho ro, ho ro Ho ro, ho ro
Ho ro hug eile Ho ro hug eile
__ gu brth __ forever
