How did you get on? Now try the second verse:

còdhail meeting
sireadhpleading, search

Let’s try the first two lines:

O nam faicinn thu a' tighinn,,
Ruithinn dhol nad chòdhail
If I saw you coming,
I would run to meet you

The verse continues:

Ach mur tig thu 'n seo gam shireadh,
Ciamar thilleas dòchas?
But if you don’t come here to search for me,
How can hope return?

The verse in full is:

O nam faicinn thu a' tighinn,
Ruithinn dhol nad chòdhail,
Ach mur tig thu 'n seo gam shireadh,
Ciamar thilleas dòchas?
If I saw you coming,
I would run to meet you,
But if you don’t come here to search for me,
How can hope return?
