Vair me oro van o
Vair me oro van ee
Vair me oru o ho
Sad am I without thee.

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

Vair me oro van o
Vair me oro van ee
Vair me oru o ho
Sad am I without thee.

Thou’rt the music of my heart,
Harp of joy, oh cruit mo chridh,
Moon of guidance by night,
Strength and light thou’rt to me.

Vair me oro van o
Vair me oro van ee
Vair me oru o ho
Sad am I without thee.
