HAIL, GLORIOUS ST. PATRICK
(words: Sister Agnes / tune: ancient Irish melody, 1920)


Hail, glorious St. Patrick, dear saint of our isle,
On us thy poor children bestow a sweet smile;
And now thou art high in the mansions above,
On Erin's green valleys look down in thy love.

(optional repeat)
On Erin's green valleys, on Erin's green valleys,
On Erin's green valleys look down in thy love.

Hail, glorious St. Patrick, thy words were once strong
Against Satan's wiles and a heretic throng;
Not less is thy might where in Heaven thou art;
Oh, come to our aid, in our battle take part!

In a war against sin, in the fight for the faith,
Dear Saint, may thy children resist to the death;
May their strength be in meekness, in penance, and prayer,
Their banner the Cross, which they glory to bear.

Thy people, now exiles on many a shore,
Shall love and revere thee till time be no more;
And the fire thou hast kindled shall ever burn bright,
Its warmth undiminished, undying its light.

Ever bless and defend the sweet land of our birth,
Where the shamrock still blooms as when thou wert on earth,
And our hearts shall yet burn, wherever we roam,
For God and St. Patrick, and our native home.



Wasn't able to locate chords with a cursory search. Will look more tomorrow. Have posted lyrics in event someone knows the chording. Will make it easier for them to put them in the text.

Going to Catholic primary school in England, way back when, we used to sing this song. Being English, the line "dear saint of our isle" used to confuse me somewhat.

My brother thought it was "Dear saint of Argyll", which historically might indeed be true, since Argyll was part of Strathclyde, a British kingdom, when Patrick was alad, and he was the right side of the country toi be kidnapped by Irish slavers.

But that bit about the CHILDREN resisting unto death.... same as in Faith of Our Fathers, the adults were always wishing the children to die for the fate, we thought, if there was any dying to be done it should be the adults who do it.
