    And scorn to give aught other reason why;
    Would shake hands with a king upon his throne,
    And think it kindness to his majesty.

There came to the beach a poor Exile of Erin,
The dew on his thin robe was heavy and chill;
For his country he sigh'd, when at twilight repairing.
To wander along by the wind-beaten hill.
But the day star attracted his eyes' sad devotion,
For it rose o'er his own native isle of the ocean,
Where once in the fire of his youthful emotion
He sang the bold anthem of Erin-go-bragh.

Breathes there the man with soul so dead,
Who never to himself hath said,
This is my own, my native land!
Whose heart hath ne'er within him burn'd,
As home his footsteps he hath turn'd,
From wandering on a foreign strand!

So the loud torrent, and the whirlwind's roar,
But bind him to his native mountains more.

We follow in his flight;
Farewell awhile to him and thee,
My native land--Good Night!
