You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Eilean mo Chridh

Language: Scots Gaelic

Mo chridhe fo lèon, ochoin, nach fhaod mi bhi ann!
Mo chridhe fo lèon, ochoin, nach fhaod mi bhi thall,
Mo chridhe fo dhìobhail Righ! nach robh mise thall,
An eilean mo chridh, 'sfo thaobhghil leiter nam beann.

Sior iargain 'nam chom is fonn an eilein 'nam chluais,
Sior chrònan nan allt 'san deannruith siaradh gu cuan,
Sior ghàirich nan stuadh sior bhualadh shios agus shuas,
Is nigheanag nan dual ri duan fo leiter nam beann.

Mo chridhe fo lèon, ochoin, nach fhaod mi bhi thall,
Mo chridhe fo dhìobhail Righ! nach robh mise thall,
An eilean mo ghaoil 'sfo thaobhghil leiter nam beann,

Tha cuid de mo shluagh 'nan suain an eilean mo ghraidh,
Tha cuid diubh 'nan duisg ri urnuigh dhion air mo sgàth,
'S cha chaill mi mo dhùil 's mo run, mun criochnaich mo lá,
Gu'n till mi, dheoin Dia, gu m'iarrtus, leiter nam beann.

Mo chridhe fo lèon, ochoin, nach fhaod mi bhi ann,
Mo chridhe fo lèon, ochoin, nach fhaod mi bhi thall,
Mo chridhe fo dhìobhail Righ! nach robh mise thall,
An eilean mo chridh, 'sfo thaobhghil leiter nam beann.
