Original text and translations

Lowland_Scots.png Scottish Gaelic text

1. Sol as na grèine
Madainn na glòrach,
Ceòl-raidh an t-slèibhe
Caith-ream don là;
Mola-maid ceòlraidh,
Molamaid bòidhchead,
Molamaid dòchas
Facal A ghràis.

2. Uis geachan mìne
Tuiteam bho Nèamh mar
Thuirling an driùchd
Thug toiseach air fàs;
Milis am mìnead,
Mais-each an dìthean
Dh'èirich gun strì
An làrach a shàil.

3. Sol as na grèine
Mad-ainn na glòrach,
Dheal-raich air Eden
Dealrachadh oirnn;
Mol-adh le èibhneas,
Moladh ag èirigh,
Cruthaidheachd Dhè
Air madainn gach lò.
