Eriskay Love Lilt or When I'm Lonely Dear White Heart

Melody - Seq. by Barry Taylor

Traditional, from the Hebrides Islands

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.

|: 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. :|
