On John M'Murdo

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation

 

Blest be M'Murdo to his latest day!
No envious cloud o'ercast his evening ray!
No wrinkle furrow'd by the hand of care,
Nor ever sorrow, add one silver hair!
O may no son the father's honor stain,
Nor ever daughter give the mother pain!

 

Blessed be M'Murdo to his last day!
No envious cloud overcast his evening ray!
No wrinkle furrowed by the hand of care,
Nor ever sorrow, add one silver hair!
O may no son the father's honour stain,
Nor ever daughter give the mother pain!
