Deora Ar Mo Chroi

[Irish (Gaeilge) Translation]
deora ar mo chroi
Ba dheas an la go oiche
Na glortha binne i mo thaobh
‘S aoibhneas i gach ait gan gruaim
Athas ar mo chroi go deo

Ma shiulaim o na laetha beo
An ghrian ‘s an ghealach ar mo chul
Nil uaim ach smaointe o mo shaoil
Deora ar mo chroi go bron
tears on my heart
It was beautiful all day [1]
The sweet voices by my side
And beauty without dispair everywhere
Joy in my heart forever

If I walk from the alive days
The sun and the moon behind me [2]
I’ll only need thoughts from my life
Tears sorrowfully on my heart

[Adaptation by Roma Ryan]

tears on my heart
How beautiful the day and night;
the earth is singing in the wind,
the voices rise and touch the sky
telling all the earth’s believing,
and in the night sighs fall down,
and from the skies sighs fall down on me.

And when I move away from view
my voice is singing in the wind,
it rises up to touch the sky
telling all that I believe in,
and from the night earth shall sing,
and from the night earth shall sing,
and from the night earth shall sing again.
