 When boyhood's fire  was  in my blood

(7) (6) (8) 7(7)(6)(7)  (8) 7
 I  read of  ancient   freemen,

  6    6   (6)(7)  7  (7) 7 8 (8)    7 
 For Greece and  Rome who  bravely stood,

  (7)  (6) (8) 7(7) (6)(7) (6)   6
 Three hundred men  and   three men;

  6   6  (6)  (7) 7(8)  6    6 
 Then I prayed I yet  might see

  6  (6) (7)   7  (8)  8
 Our fetters rent in twain,

 7(7) (6) (6)   (9) 8  (8) 7    (7) 
 And  Ireland, long a province, be.

 A Nation once again!

 A Nation once again,

(6)(9) 8  (8)  7 (7)
 A Nation once again,

 (6) 6 (6) (7)   7  (7)7 (6) (8)  (7)
 And lreland,  long  a   province, be

 7(8)  8 (9) (8)   7 7
 A    Nation once again!


And from that time, through wildest woe,
That hope has shone a far light,
Nor could love's brightest summer glow
Outshine that solemn starlight;
It seemed to watch above my head
In forum, field and fane,
Its angel voice sang round my bed,
A Nation once again!


It whisper'd too, that freedom's ark
And service high and holy,
Would be profaned by feelings dark
And passions vain or lowly;
For, Freedom comes from God's right hand,
And needs a Godly train;
And righteous men must make our land
A Nation once again!


So, as I grew from boy to man,
I bent me to that bidding
My spirit of each selfish plan
And cruel passion ridding;
For, thus I hoped some day to aid,
Oh, can such hope be vain ?
When my dear country shall be made
A Nation once again!
