A Highland Welcome

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation

When Death's dark stream I ferry o'er
(A time that surely shall come),
In Heaven itself I'll ask no more
Than just a Highland welcome.

When Death's dark stream I ferry over
(A time that surely shall come),
In Heaven itself I will ask no more
Than just a Highland welcome.
