Hail, glorious Saint Patrick
Dear Saint of our Isle
On us thy poor children
Bestow a sweet smile
And now Thou art high
In Thy mansions above

On Erin’s green valleys (3)
Look down in thy love.

Hail, glorious Saint Patrick
Thy words were once strong
Against Satan’s wiles and
An infidel throng
Not less in Thy might
Where in heaven Thou art

Oh, come to our aid (3)
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 (3)
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 (3)
Undying its light

Ever bless and defend
The sweet land of our birth
Where the shamrock still blooms
As when thou were on earth
And our hearts shall yet burn
Wherever we roam

For God and St. Patrick (3)
And our native home
