Meaning of 'S & 'N

Like used in the phrase "Shuain 's thoir beò mì, Thoir bhuam mo bhruadar 's lig dhomh èiridh." - Taken from lyrics written in Gàidhlig posted to YouTube, not sure on what its purpose is :/

It takes the place of a vowel to allow the sentence to flow easier.

's is short for is, 'n is short for an.
