The Song Of Amergin

This song is by Lisa Gerrard and appears on the album Immortal Memory (2004).

An gaeth I m-muir
Am tond trethan
Am fuaim mara
Am dam secht ndirend
Am séig I n-aill
Am dér gréne
Am cain lubai
Am torc ar gail
Am he i l-lind
Am loch I m-maig
Am brí a nadai
Am gái I fodh feras feochtu
Am dé delbas do chind codnu

Coiche nod gleith clochur slébe?
Cia on co tagair aesa éscai?
Cia du I l-laig fuiniud gréné?
Cia beir buar o thig Tethrach?
Cia buar Tethrach tini?
Cia dám, cia dé delbas faebru a ndind ailslu?
Cáinte im gal - cainte gaithe?
