Гимн Ирландии / Hymn Ireland

 Lyrics by: Peadar Kearney  Music by: Patrick Heeney


Манускрипт национального гимна Ирландии (Hymn Ireland)

Текст государственного гимна "Бойцовская песнь" (по-английски - "The Soldier s Song", по-ирландски - "Amhran na bhFiann") был написан в 1907 году Peadar Kearney. Затем совместно с Patrick Heeney была написана музыка. Впервые опубликована в 1912 году в газете Irish Freedom. Государственным гимном Ирландии стала в 1926 году.

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. 

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 watched day is breaking; 
The serried ranks of Inisfail 
Shall set the Tyrant quaking.
Our camp fires now are burning low;
See in the east a silv'ry glow,
Out yonder waits the Saxon foe,
So chant a soldier's song.
