Sist: Chorus (after each verse):
O chraobh nan ubhal, o Oh apple tree
Craobh nan ubhal, geug nan abhull Apple tree, branch of the apple tree
O chraobh nan ubhal, o Oh apple tree
   
Aithnich fhin a'chraobh tha leamsa Know the tree that is mine
   
Chraobh as mtha 's as mlse bhlan The tallest with the sweetest apples
   
___ Its trunk strikes downwards, its top is bending
   
Chraobh nan ubhal, gu robh Dia leat Apple tree, may God be with you
   
Gu robh 'n ird an ear 's an iar leat May the east and the west be with you
   
Go robh gach gealach agus grian leat May every sun and moon be with you
   
___ May every element be with you
