|Oíche Chiúin||Silent Night|
Oíche chiúin, oíche Mhic Dé,|
Cách 'na suan dís araon.
Dís is dílse 'faire le spéis
Naíon beag, leanbh ceansa 'gus caomh.
Críost, 'na chodladh go sámh.
Oíche chiúin, oíche Mhic Dé,
Críost an Slánaitheoir Féin.
Silent night, night of God's son,|
Everyone is asleep, the pair together.
The most faithful pair, watching with hope
A little baby, a mild and gentle child.
Christ, calmly asleep.
Silent night, night of God's son,
Christ, the saviour himself.
|'S Fágaim mo Bhaile||And I Leave my Home|
Maidin 's tús an lae|
's fágaim mo bhaile.
Tá mo chroíse go brón
's fada ar shiúl m'óige.
Deireadh an turas mór,
Is fada anois an lá
Morning and the start of the day|
and I leave my home.
My heart is grieving
and my youth is long past.
The end of the great journey,
Long ago was the day
The title "As Baile" can be translated as "away from home".
The song itself is all intonation, although you might say the
intonation is "based" in Irish Gaelic. Enya sings "oró, horo,
mo-ray he u way, he u way" and so on. The word "oró" is an
interjection that could be translated as "oh!" or "oho!", but the rest
of the song is intonation.
