ANTHEM FOR IRELAND

Oh Land of Love, we bless thee gentle Mother
Oh Land of Light, the fair Jewel of the Sea
Oh Land of Joy, where brother shall greet brother
And all thy souls shall dwell in harmony

And when the clouds of torment and of sorrow
Flee with the dark at rising of the sun
Hand shall clasp hand in happiness tomorrow
When we have learned that all who dwell in Thee are One.

All wounds shall heal, unkindness be forgiven
All hurts forgot, as ends our darkest night
No more shall we by war nor strife be riven
All Ireland's Children face the future bright

Chorus:
One God shall reign in hearts His flame has lighted
And He shall lead our people to the sun
One heart, one soul, one land by Love United
Where we shall live in peace until His Will be done

Chorus

by Desmond Leslie
