Erin! the tear and the smile in thine eyes,
Blend like the rainbow that hangs in the skies!
Shining through sorrow's stream, sadd'ning through pleasure's beam,
Thy suns, with doubtful gleam, weep while they rise!
Erin! thy silent tear never shall cease;
Erin, thy languid smile ne'er shall increase,
Till, like the rainbow's light, thy various tints unite,
And form in heaven's sight one arch of peace
