In The Dark of Night


In The Dark Of Night March 22, 2016

Our heroes have gone but not very far
 In the dark of the night you can see a star
 The light of freedom on Irelands shore
 Look around you'll see many more
 Ten stars shine from high above
 A message of peace just like the dove
 Fourteen stars from a Derry street
 Killed for peace without defeat
 The H Block cells share the sky
 Why did it happen, we still ask why
 Stars shine down on a Dublin street
 In honor of Ireland where spirits meet
 The Starry Plough can be seen at night
 Shining down for Connolly's fight
 The heavens share the light of peace
 Someday soon our troubles will cease
 Our heroes have gone but not very far
 In the dark of night you can see a star
