GOD MADE THE FLAG OF IRELAND. By Rev. P. A. Sharkey.

GOD MADE THE FLAG OF IRELAND.
By Rev. P. A. Sharkey.

God made the flag of Ireland, His angels wove each fold,
And wrapped around our sireland The Green and White and Gold.
It crowns old Ireland's mountains by Heaven's supreme decree
Above the graves of Ireland's brave it waves serene and free.

Though Britain's brutal laws have banned The Gold and White and Green,
God's angels wove its every strand, And low its glimmering sheen is,
Seen upon the mountain tops in folds of golden gorse,
Where white buds washed in dew drops

Grow, and streamlets wend their course. God made the flag of Ireland,
No puny human hands can tear from her, our sireland,
The love for which it stands— The White of Erin's virgin love,
Forgiving times untold, And bridging by His will above the deathless Green and Gold.


God made the flag of Ireland he made her sons to be the warders of their sireland,
A nation pure and free. Today no tyrant's bluster Shall cloud the Easter Dawn,
Beneath God's flag we muster, Our cry "Sinn Fein awaun!"
