Verse 1
Lá na mara
Lá na mara nó rabharta
Guth na dtonnta a leanadh
Guth na dtonnta a leanfad ó
Lá na mara nó lom trá
Lá na mara nó rabharta
Lá an ghainimh, lom trá
Lá an ghainimh
Verse 2
(The day of the sea
The day of the sea or of the high tides
To follow the voice of the waves
I would follow the voice of the waves
The day of the sea or the ebb tide
The day of the sea or of the high tides
The day of the sands, the ebb tide
The day of the sands)
Verse 3
Can you feel the river run?
Waves are dancing to the sun
Take the tide and face the sea
And find a way to follow me
Verse 4
Leave the field and leave the fire
And find the flame of your desire
Set your heart on this far shore
And sing your dream to me once more

'Sé mo laoch mo ghile mear
'Sé mo Shéasar, gile mear
Suan gan séan ní bhfuair mé féin
Ó chuaigh I gcéin mo ghile mear
Verse 6
(He is my hero, my dashing darling
He is my Caesar, dashing darling
Rest or pleasure I did not get
Since he went far away, my darling)

Now the time has come to leave
Keep the flame and still believe
Know that love will shine through darkness
One bright star to light the wave

Amhrán na farraige
Ór are na seolta
Amhrán na farraige
Ag seoladh na bhfonnta...

Gold on the sails

Sending the melodies...)

Know that love will never fail
Know that I will sing to you
Each night as I dream of you
