Children of Ireland

An ocean roaring round her shores

A million shades of nature’s green

A magic that invites, implores

That, Alas, I’ve never seen

 

But there’s a spirit set in me

That spans beyond the drink and spud

A strength to face catastrophe

A joy that lives within my blood

 

The tales told well by my relations

Of a never ending pride

Of over coming tribulations

With hearts and smiles that both grew wide

 

You can hear it in the music

And see it in their sparkling eyes

When hardship comes we will live through it

For a fighting spirit never dies

 

So laugh plainly and loudly so

And gather friends as oft you can

Set music to your deepest woe

Like the children of fair Ireland
