The National Anthem Of The Republic Ireland – A Soldiers Song lyrics


Amhrбn na bhfiann
Seo dhibh a chбirde duan уglaigh,
Cathrйimeach briomhar ceolmhar,
бare dtinte cnбmh go buacach tбid,
's an spйir go min rйaltogach
Is fonnmhar faobhrach sinn chun gleo
's go tiъnmhar glй roimh thнocht do'n lу
Fй chiъnas chaomh na hoiche ar seol:
Seo libh canaнdh Amhrбn na bhfiann

Sinne Firnna Fбil
A tб fй gheall ag йirinn,
Buion dбare slua
Thar toinn do rбinig chugainn,
Fй mhуid bheith saor.
Sean tнare бare sinsir feasta
Nн fhagfar fй'n tiorбn nб fйn trбil
Anocht a thйam sa bhearna bhaoil,
Le gean ar Ghaeil chun bбis nу saoil
Le guna screach fй lбmhach na bpilйar
Seo libh canaнdh Amhrбn na bhfiann.

Cois bбnta rйidhe, ar бrdaibh slйibhe,
Ba bhuachach бare sinsir romhainn,
Ag lбmhach go trйan fй'n sбare-bhrat sйin
Tб thuas sa ghaoith go seolta
Ba dhъchas riamh d'бare gcine chбidh
Gan iompбil siar у imirt бir,
's ag siъl mar iad I gcoinne nбmhad
Seo libh, canaнdh Amhrбn na bhfiann



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.
