This song is by Runrig and appears on the album Amazing Things (1993) and on the album Transmitting Live (1994).

Madainn Di-haoine 's duthaich fo sgoth
'S mi sgith le cuid smalan, mi-mhisneachd is bron
Seo an deicheamh la dhan a'Ghiblean 'sinn fo ghruaim a rithist
An co-dhunadh a cheannaich na daoine aig pris

Tha spiorad nan daoine nas soilleir na ghealach
Nas doimhne na'n cuan
Geigh sinn ar n-aite 'san t-shaoghal
'S an ginealach ur
Ard: blar nan daoine
Ard: guth is saorsa
Ard: tha sinn gluasad
Gu h-ard theid sinn suas

'S iomadh trioblaidtha romhainn 'nis Gaidheal agus Gall
'S mi le aon suil air eachdraidh, aon suil mo chlann
Ach cum creideamh nad bheatha, sonas nad chridhe
Chan e seo deireadh rathaid ach toiseach linn

Tha spiorad nan daoine nas soilleir na ghealach
Nas doimhne na'n cuan
Geigh sinn ar n-aite 'san t-shaoghal
'S an ginealach ur

Ard: blar nan daoine
Ard: guth is saorsa
Ard: tha sinn gluasad
Gu h-ard theid sinn suas

(Chorus)

Chan urrain dhomh fuireach an taigh 'tha fo sgoth
Ach le creideamh is dochas gu deireadh mo la
Tha an lasair nad anam aig meadhan do bhith
Nas laidir's nas motha na riaghaltas no righ

(Chorus)

(Chorus)

Friday morning and the country is under a cloud
But I am tired of sorrow, pessimism, and gloom
This is the tenth day of April and we have been let down again
The decision that our people have bought at a price

The spirit of the people is brighter than the moon
Deeper than the ocean
We will find our place in the world
In a new generation

High: The peoples struggle
High: A Voice and self-determination
High: We are moving
We will reach up there

Many troubles now confront us, Highlander and Lowlander
As I keep one eye on history, one eye on my children,
Keep belief in your life, joy in your heart
This is not the end of the road, but the start of a new age

The spirit of the people is brighter than the moon
Deeper than the ocean
We will find our place in the world
In a new generation
High: The peoples struggle
High: A Voice and self-determination
High: We are moving
We will reach up there

(Chorus)

I can not live in the house of despondency
But in faith and in hope till the end of my days
The spark in your soul is the centre of your whole existence
And it is bigger and stronger than any government or King

(Chorus)

(Chorus)
