Drove all the snakes from Ireland, here's a drink to his health!

Forget the good Saint Patrick, and see them snakes again!

On gentle Irish ground,
'Tis Paradise without the snake -
That's easy to be found.

For 'tis green, green, green, where the ruined towers are gray,
And it's green, green, green, all the happy night and day;
Green of leaf and green of sod, green of ivy on the wall,
And the blessed Irish shamrock with the fairest green of all.

O, the red rose may be fair,
And the lily statelier;
But my shamrock, one in three
Takes the very heart of me!

There's a dear little plant that grows in our isle,
'Twas St Patrick himself, sure, that set it;
And the sun on his labor with pleasure did smile,
And with dew from his eye often wet it.
It thrives through the bog, through the brake, and the mireland;
And he called it the dear little shamrock of Ireland...

Liveried angels robed in green,
Wearing, by St Patrick's bounty,
Emeralds big as half the county.

Sprang from a rich and sacred soil
Where saint and hero lived of yore,
And where their sons in sorrow toil.

But their own immortal Green?

May history remind us all
Of Ireland's faith and pride.

May love and faith abide.

May good luck pursue you each morning and night.
