A Nation Once Again Lyrics

(Thomas Davis)

When boyhood's fire was in my blood, I read of ancient
free men

Of Greece and Rome who bravely stood, three hundred men
and free men

And then I prayed I yet might see, our fetters rent in
twain

And Ireland long a province be, a nation once again

Chorus:

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
shone a far light

Nor could love's brightest summer glow, outshine that
solemn starlight

It seemed to watched above my head, through forum,
field and fain

It's angel voice sang round me bed, a nation once again

Chorus:

A nation once again, a nation once again

And Ireland long a province be, a nation once again

So as I grew from boy to man, I bent thee to my bidding

My spirit of each selfish plan and cruel passion
ridding

For thus I hope someday to aid, nor can such hope be
vain

When my dear country shall be made, a nation once again

Chorus:

A nation once again, a nation once again

And Ireland long a province be, a nation once again
