Subject: ANTHEM FOR IRELAND
From: Ezio, Italy
Date: 31 May 97 - 02:29 AM

This should be missing in DT:

ANTHEM FOR IRELAND

Oh Land of love we bless thee gentle water
Oh Land of light that you'll love the sea
Oh Land of joy where brother should breathe brother
And all thy souls shall dwell in harmony
And with the clouds, the torrents, and the sorrow
Plead with the dark at rising of the sun
And shook last palm in happiness tomorrow
when we have learned.
All wounds shall heal, and kindest people hear him
All hearts were bought as in our darkest night
No more shall we by war not strife be ridden
All Ireland Children face the future bright

CHORUS: One God shall reign in hearts his flame
Has lighted and he shall lead our people to the sun
One heart and soul, one land my love United
Where we shall live in peace until this world be done

Chorus

(Recorded by De Dannan, featuring Dolores Keane)

ANTHEM FOR IRELAND

Oh Land of Love, we bless thee gentle Mother
Oh Land of Light, the Jewel of the Sea
Oh Land of Joy, where brother shall greet brother
And all thy souls shall dwell in harmony

And when the clouds of torrent and of sorrow
Flee with the dark at rising of the sun
And shall clasp hands in happiness tomorrow
When we have learned that all who dwell in Thee are One.

All wounds shall heal, unkindness be forgiven
All hurts forgot, as in the darkest night
No more shall we by war nor strife be ridden
All Ireland's Children face the future bright

Chorus:
One God shall reign in hearts His flame has lighted
And He shall lead our people to the sun
One heart, one soul, one land by Love United
Where we shall live in peace until His Will be done

Chorus

Any hint as to where this song comes from (presumably it's a modern composition), or what the tune might be?

As it turns out, I can answer my own question.  The lyric was written by Desmond Leslie; the tune is The Londonderry Air.

The tune to this peace of music is the same as "O Danny Boy (the pipes, the pipes are calling)"...
As Irishman, I'd like to point out it's Derry, not LondonDerry!

After listening closely (several times) to the De Dannan recording, I think Mr. Douglas' lyrics need a few more corr4ections.

In second line, I think it is "fair jewel" rather than "the jewel"

In first line of second stanza "torrent" should be "torment."

In third stanza third line "ridden" should be "riven"

In last line of chorus, "until His Will be done" doesn't make sense to me; it's hard to make out exactly the second and third words of this phrase, but I think the phrase should read "until this world be done."

I am pretty sure the last line, "until His Will be done" refers to the will of God, as referenced in the lines before it.
However, does anyone know when Desmond Leslie wrote this? And is this the same Desmond Leslie that was a UFO expert, novelist, writer of 'outer space' music, and who famously punched critic Bernard Levin on 'That Was the Week That Was' in 1963?

Son of Sir Shane Leslie of Castle Leslie in Monaghan, one-time Spitfire pilot...etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.

Some character! Can't pin down that it was he, for now, but it wouldn't surprise me!

Now that I think of it, I believe Danny O'Flaherty sings that last line 'until His work is done.'

FWIW

Note that it's the Irish that's the translation - the original was in English.
