A NATION ONCE AGAIN (Thomas Osbourne Davis) When Boyhood's fire was in my blood, I read of ancient freemen When Greece and Rome who Bravely stood, Three hundred men and three men And then I prayed I might yet see Our fetters rent in twain And Ireland long a province be A Nation Once Again 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 glow Outshine that solemn starlight It seemed to watch above my head in forum, field and fane It's angels voice sang `round my bed A Nation Once Again A Nation Once Again,A Nation Once Again And Ireland long a province be a nation once again It whispered too that freedom's ark And service high and holy Would be profane by feeling dark For passions vane or lowly But freedom comes from God's right hand And needs a Godly train And rightous men must make our land A Nation Once Again 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 me to that bidding My spirit of each selfish plan And cruel passion ridding For thus, I hoped one day to aid Oh can such hope be vain? When my dear country shall be made A Nation Once Again A Nation Once Again,A Nation Once Again And Ireland long a province be a nation once again
