Burns Original

Standard English Translation

Envy, if thy jaundiced eye
Through this window chance to spy,
To thy sorrow thou shalt find,
All that's generous, all that's kind.
Friendship, virtue, every grace,
Dwelling in this happy place.

Envy, if your jaundiced eye
Through this window chance to spy,
To your sorrow you shall find,
All that is generous, all that is kind.
Friendship, virtue, every grace,
Dwelling in this happy place.
