Subject: RE: LYR ADD: Anthem for Ireland
After listening closely (several times) to the De Dannan recording, I think Mr. Douglas' lyrics need a few more corr4ections.

In second line, I think it is "fair jewel" rather than "the jewel"

In first line of second stanza "torrent" should be "torment."

In third stanza third line "ridden" should be "riven"

In last line of chorus, "until His Will be done" doesn't make sense to me; it's hard to make out exactly the second and third words of this phrase, but I think the phrase should read "until this world be done."
