We'll sing a song, a soldier's song With cheering rousing chorus As round our blazing fires we throng The starry heavens o'er us Impatient for the coming fight And as we wait the morning's light Here in the silence of the night We'll chant a soldier's song.
Chorus: Soldiers are we whose lives are pledged to Ireland Some have come from a land beyond the wave Sworn to be free No more our ancient sire land Shall shelter the despot or the slave Tonight we man the gap of danger In Erin's cause, come woe or weal 'Mid cannons' roar and rifles peal We'll chant a soldier's song. In valley green, on towering crag Our fathers fought before us And conquered 'neath the same old flag That's proudly floating o'er us We're children of a fighting race That never yet has known disgrace And as we march, the foe to face We'll chant a soldier's song.
Sons of the Gael! Men of the Pale!
The long wathed day is breaking; The serried ranks of inisfail shall set the Tryant quacking Our campfires now are burning low See in the silv'ry glow Out yonder waits the saxon foe we'll chant a soldiers song. What does this song mean to you? Gaelic Amhrn na bhFiann Seo dhibh a chirde duan glaigh, Cathrimeach briomhar ceolmhar, r dtinte cnmh go buacach tid, 'S an spir go min raltogach Is fonnmhar faobhrach sinn chun gleo 'S go tinmhar gl roimh thocht do'n l F chinas chaomh na hoiche ar seol: Seo libh canadh Amhrn na bhFiann.
