Lyrics: English Translation:
   
Gur moch rinn mi dsgadh san r mhadainn Chit Early did I arise on the fresh May morning
'S a dhrich mi'm bruthach gun duin' ach mi-fhin And I ascended the hill all alone
Tha 'ghrian air a turas a'siubhal tron speur The sun is on its course across the sky
Dealt na h-oidhche a'tirlinn thar r dhos nan geug The dew of night falling on the young shoots of the branches
   
A'drich an aonaich ri aodann a'chirn Ascending the hill beside the face of the cairn
'S binn torman a'chaochain as aoidheile brn Sweet is the murmur of the brook of purest water
Le ris air gach taobh dheth ag aomadh fon drchd With roses on either side of it bending under the dew
'S e ri derrsadh na grine ag irigh na smid In the gleam of the sun rising as a vapor
   
'S binn na h-oin feadh nam preasan gu leadarra seinn Melodious are the birds throughout the bushes singing harmoniously
Tha'n uiseag ln slais ri col os mo chionn The lark is full of solace singing above me
Na ba-laoigh anns a'gheumnaich air an ridhlean ud thall Cows with calves lowing on yonder plain
'S mac-talla nan creagan gam freagairt air ball And the echo of the rocks answering them immediately
   
Ach 's tm dhomh bhith 'g irigh 's bhith tarnadh on ird But it is time for me to arise and descend from the heights
Cha dan luinneagan feum dhomh, cha dan igheach dhomh st Songs will not help me, shouting will be worthless
Feuch am bata fo cmhdach aig cmhnard na trgh'd See the ship under sail at the flat part of the beach
Tha gam ghilan null thairis a gleannan an igh Which is to carry me yonder from the happy, small glen
