A Nation Once Again When boyhood's fire was in my blood I read of ancient freemen, For Greece and Rome who bravely stood, Three hundred men and three men; And then I prayed I yet might see Our fetters rent in twain, And Ireland. long a province, be A Nation once again! Cho: A nation once again, A nation once again, And Ireland, long a province, be A Nation once again! And from that time, through wildest woe, That hope has shown 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 fame, 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 feeling 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!
