Vair me o ro van o,
Vair me o ro van ee,
Vair me o ru o Ho,
Sad am I without thee,

When I'm lonely dear white heart,
Black the night or wild the sea,
By love's light my foot finds
The old pathway to thee.

Thou'rt the music of my heart,
Harp of joy, oh crootch mo cree,
Moon of guidance by night
Strength and light thou'rt to me.
