A Nation Once Again  Misc. Irish

                     [G]When boyhoods fire was in my blood
          I [C]read of [D7]ancient [G]freemen
          For Greece and [Em]Rome who [G]bravely [C]stood
          Three [Am]hundred [D7]men and three men
          And [D]then I prayed I might yet see
          Our [C]fetters [A7]rent in [B7]twain
          And [C]Ireland [Cm]long a [D]province be
          A [G]nation [D]once [G]again
          CHORUS:   A nation once [C]again
                    A [Am]nation once ag[D7]ain
                    And [G]Ireland [Em]long a [C]province [D]be
                    A [G]nation [D]once ag[G]ain
And from that time through wildest woe
That hope has shone a far light
Nor could loves brightest summer glow
Outshine that solemn starlight
It seemed to watch above my head
In forum, field and fane
Its angel voice sang round my bed
A nation once again
It whisperd too that freedoms ark
And service high and holy
Would be profaned by feelings dark
And passions vain or lowly
For, freedom comes form Gods right hand
And needs a godly train
And righteous men must make our land
A nation once agian
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 some day to aid
Oh, can such hope be vain
When my dear country shall be made
A nation once again.
