about

With You (Còmhla Riut-sa). This ethereal song performed by the Gaitway Brothers is a unique fusion of Gaelic, folk and classical choral music. After a dramatic introduction depicting the trials of life, the three verses are filled with hope and adoration. The most beautiful feature of the track is the recurring 'Hallelujah' refrain which features a children's choir along with a stunning descant and harmonies from Peter and Steven.

lyrics

CÒMHLA RIUT-SA

Na do ghàirdeannan Ìosa, tha mi sàbhailt’ ‘s aig sìth Na do ghàirdeannan Ìosa ~ mo Thighearna ‘s mo Rìgh Na do ghàirdeannan Ìosa, chaneil aobhar dhomh bhi strì O nach aoibhneach an àite ~ cala sòlasach mo chridh’.
Allelùia ( X 6)

‘S air mo thuras troimh’n an fhàsaich, fighte le do làmh gach ceum O carson a bhithinn fo chùram, paisgt’ nad ghàirdeannan treun Ged bu dorcha an oidhche, neo latha soilleireachd grѐin Dubh neo òr, deòir neo mire ~ tha mi còmhla riut fhѐin.
Allelùia ( X 6)

Do cheumannan nam stiùireadh ~ dìleas, treòrachadh mo shligh’ ‘S ged bhitheas mise tric gad fhàgail, O cha trѐig Thusa mi
‘S bheir Thu dhachaigh mi le aiteas nuair thig criòch air tràth ‘is tìm Far an cluinnear am Pàrras shìorraidh, cliù an Uan a ghràdhaich sinn’.
Allelùia ( X 6)

Ged bu dorcha an oidhche, neo latha soilleireachd grѐin Dubh neo òr, deòir neo mire ~ tha mi còmhla riut fhѐin.

Rough Translation

WITH YOU

And in journeying through the wilderness, each step woven by
Your hand O why would I feel burdened, enfolded in your mighty arms
Even in the darkest night, or in the brightness of a sunny day
Black or gold, tears or mirth ~ I am always with You.
Hallelujah (x 6)

Your footsteps leading me ~ faithfully guiding my way
And although I often stray from you, O you never forsake me
And You will bring me home with joy when time on earth is ended
Where, in everlasting paradise, praise to the Lamb who loved us will be forever heard.
Hallelujah (x 6)

In your arms, Jesus, I am safe and at peace
In your arms, Jesus ~ my Lord and my King
In your arms, Jesus, I have no need to strive
O how joyous a place ~ my heart’s comforting haven
Hallelujah (x 6)

Even in the darkest night, or in the brightness of a sunny day
Black or gold, tears or mirth ~ I am always with You.
