- Edition notes: SSAA arrangement. I have kept Kennedy-Fraser's original melody and piano accompaniment and added a second soprano and two alto parts. Some may find the frequent shifts in the number of staves unsettling, but I have always marked who sings where.

Original text and translations
Scottish Gaelic and English text
Bheir me o, horo van o
Bheir me o, horo van ee
Bheir me o, o horo 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, o cruit mo chruidh;
Moon of guidance by night;
Strength and light thou’rt to me.
