Lyrics: English Translation:
   
Mo chridhe trom is duilich leam My heart is heavy
Gur muladach a tha mi My sadness is hard to bear
Mo chridhe briste brit Mu heart, bruised and broken
Ach air mo shil chan aithnich cach sin Though none can see it in my eye
Mo chridhe trom is duilich leam My heavy heart is hard to bear
   
Nuair chunnaic mis' an toiseach thu When first I saw you
'Nad shuidh' air stoc a' bhta Sitting on the tiller of the boat
Se cig bliadhn' deug a dh' aois bha mi I was just fifteen then
A ghaoil nuair thug mi grdh dhut When I gave you my love
Mo chridhe trom is duilich leam My heavy heart is hard to bear
   
Cuimhnich air do bhidean rium Remember your vows to me
An Sternabhagh a bha sinn That time in Stornoway
'S ann air taobh muigh an Royal It was outside the Royal
Chug thu bid dhomh nach do phigh thu You made a vow that you failed to keep
Mo chridhe trom is duilich leam My heavy heart is hard to bear
   
Chuimhnich air do bhriathran rium Remember your words to me
Di-Caidain sios am Brighe That Wednesday on the Brae
Nach fhaiceadh Dia na daoine You said that neither god nor man
Bean mo chaochlaidh air do ghirdean Would ever see another on your arm
Mo chridhe trom is duilich leam My heavy heart is hard to bear
   
Ma 'se 's gun tug thu fuath dhomh If you have turned from me
'S a luaidh ma rinn thu m'fhgail And, my precious, if you have abandoned me
Chan fhad gun dan an sluagh Soon the people will lay me down
Anns a' chiste fhuair mo chradh In my cold coffin
Mo chridhe trom is duilich leam My heavy heart is hard to bear
