Tiocfaidh Ár Lá (Our Day Will Come)
lá, our day will come
Our glorious day, for Erin's fighting
The day will come, we will be free
Tiocfaidh ár lá, the dawn of liberty.
It's been a long 800 years
Of British scorn and Irish tears
And only freedom will suffice
We've made too long a sacrifice.
And those who hold the power today
A full account you'll have to pay
To those held down by unjust laws
Because they love our freedom's cause.
And those who make the prisons hell
Who hold the keys and lock the cells
Your time will come, it's long due
We'll have our chance to turn the screw.
