Hail Glorious Saint Patrick

HAIL GLORIOUS SAINT PATRICK

                       I
Hail glorious Saint Patrick, dear Saint of our isle.
On us they poor children bestow a sweet smile.
And now thou art high in thy mansions above,
On Erin’s green valleys, look down in thy love.
On Erin’s green valleys. (3x)
Look down in thy love.

                        II
Ever bless and defend us, dear land of our birth.
Where the shamrock still blooms as when thou wert on earth.
And out hearts shall still burn where so ever we roam
For God and Saint Patrick and our native home.
For God and Saint Patrick. (3x)
And our native home.

                        III
Hail glorious Saint Patrick, thy words were once strong
Against Satan’s wiles and an infidel throng;
Not less is thy might where in Heaven thou art.
Oh! Come to our aid, in our battles take part.
Oh! Come to our aid, (3x)
In our battles take part.

                        IV
In the war against sin, in the fight for the Faith,
Dear Saint, may they children resist to the death;
May their strength be in meekness, in penance and prayer;
Their banner the Cross which they glory to bear.
Their banner the Cross (3x)
which they glory to bear.
