The minstrel boy to the war is gone,In the ranks of death you'll find him;His father's sword he has girded on,And his wild harp slung behind him;"Land of Song!" said the warrior bard,"Though all the world betrays thee,One sword, at least, thy rights shall guard,One faithful harp shall praise thee!"
