Lyrics
The tune is also known as When I'm Lonely Dear White Heart and is one of the Songs of the Hebrides. Vair me o, ro van o
Vair me o ro ven ee,
Vair me o ru o ho
Sad I am without thee.


When I'm lonely, dear white heart,
Black the night and wild the sea;
by love's light my foot finds
The old pathway to thee.

Vair me o, ro van o
Vair me o ro ven ee,
Vair me o ru o ho
Sad I am without thee.


Thou'rt the music of my heart,
Harp of joy, o cuit mo chridh,
Moon of guidance by night,
Strength and light thou'rt to me.

Vair me o, ro van o
Vair me o ro ven ee,
Vair me o ru o ho
Sad I am without thee.
