Audio cassette tape of a collection of Gaelic hymns from Tiree, sung by John MacFadyen, Tiree.

Taobh / Side 1:  ‘S e gràdh Fir-saoraidh; O nach glòrmhor dhuit fein; Och a Shlanuigheir; Bhon fhuair mi’n t-slàint, Tha ìoc-shlaint aig, Ged tha mi bochd san fhàsach; Bha mi uaireigin.

Love of the Redeemer; How glorious for you; O, Savior; Since I received my health; There is a cure; Though I am wretched in the desert; I was once.

Taobh / Side 2:   O thig a pheacaich, ’S e Crìosd an fhìrinn, Air dhomh bhith sealltainn, Ar leam gur sona ’n aireamh, ’S e leanabh an àigh, Och a Shlànuigheir Chaoimh

O sin will come; Christ is truth; I have been searching; I believe the number is blessed; Heaven’s child; O Gentle Savior.

Audio cassette tape of a collections of Gaelic hymns from Tiree, sung by Mary Cameron, Tiree.

Taobh/Side 1:   On bhàsaich Ios’ air Calbharaigh; Nuair a bha mo chridh’ gam dhìteadh, Nach faic sibh Iosa, Seo an duan nach fas sinn sgìth dhi, Seo an sgeul sa bheil a bhrìgh, Ged tha mi bochd san fhasach.

Since Jesus died on Calvary; When my heart was condemning me; Won’t you see Jesus; This is the song we won’t grow weary of; This is the story in which there is meaning; Though I am wretched in the desert.

Taobh/Side 2:   Gum mol mi gu bràth; ’S e ’n iobhair reitich; B’ iriseal a thàinig tu; Is iomadh latha; Tha tìr ann; Iosa gleidh mi; O mìorbhail gràis

I will praise forever; ‘The cause for reconciliation; Humble you came; It is many a day; There is a land; Jesus keep me; O the miracle of grace
