Comhla rium
A tha thu an drasd Mo shuilean duinte, mo chuimhne dan
Nam sheasamh a' coimhead Gach cnoc is gach traigh Is an siol a dh'fhag thu ann a 'fas
Tha an garradh lan
Le craobhan treun
Le meas a' fas dhuinn ann ri bhuain Ubhlan abaich Milis geur
Ach tha aon ubhal nach ruig sinn idir air
Is co 'nar measg A mhaireas la Seachad air am is air oidhche fhein
A liuthad uair
A shreap mi suas Airson an ubhal as airde chur gu beul Seididh gaoth is dearrsaidh grian
Tro mheas nan craobhan lin gu lin
Ach thig an la is thig an t-am Airson an ubhal as airde Air a' chraobh a bhuain The Highest Apple
At present All you were is with me
My eyes closed, my memory confident Standing here watching Each hill and shoreline With the seed you left Still growing
The garden is well stocked With mighty trees
With fruit growing for the whole world
Ripe, sweet And bitter apples
And the one apple That is beyond reach
Who amongst us
Can exist a single day Beyond our own time and our own limits Countless and Futile Are times I've climbed To reach and taste The forbidden fruit
The winds will blow
And the sun will shine From generation to generation Through the trees of the garden But the day and the hour
Will surely come
To take the highest apple
From the knowledge tree
