Inspirational Corner

Oh Danny boy, the pipes the pipes are calling,

From glen to glen and on the mountainside.

The summer’s gone and all the leaves are falling,

‘Tis you must go, ‘tis you must go and I must bide!

But come you back, when summer’s in the meadow,

Or when the valley’s hush and white with snow!

Then I’ll be there in sunshine or in shadow,

Oh Danny Boy, Oh Danny Boy, I love you so!

And if you come, when all the flowers are dying

And I am dead, as dead I well may be

You’ll come and find the place where I am lying

And kneel and say an “Ave” there for me.

And I shall hear, tho’ soft you tread above me

And all my dreams will warm and sweeter be

If you’ll not fail to tell me that you love me

I simply sleep in peace until you come to me.

Olde Londonderry Air
