(Old Dirge from the Isle of Mull)

|The tune is an old air An cronan Muilach.||
Heavy the beat of the weary waves,
Falling, falling, o'er and o'er upon the rocky shore,
When he comes no more alas! no more!
Och-one! Evermore, Och-one.
Tears of despair from the weeping sky,
Falling to the earth beneath,
And o'er the gloomy heath
Hangs a misty pall of death, of death!
Och-one! Evermore, Och-one!
