The Bells of Ireland

Song by Rosalie Sorrels

These are the Bells of Ireland, that in my garden grow,
My great-grandmother brought those seeds from Ireland long ago.
Their music it is wild and sad, like orphaned angels sing,
And you must listen in your soul to hear the Bells of Ireland ring.

My motherís father had the look of Irelandís heroes bold,
Strong broad shoulders, raven eyes to look into your soul.
My fatherís motherís face was a map of the roads Maeveís feet had trod.
Rose of the world, Iím named for her. Lord, I love her lost old sod!


Iíve never been to Ireland, though I sing of the cool green shores,
And I dream I must have lived there some century before.
I weep for the blood and the troubles, and I tend my garden well.
Let the sweet green bells of Ireland out-ring the bells of hell.



The above is from fifth song down.
