twelfth of July: Ireland north and south

"Come pledge again your heart and your hand
One grasp that never will sever
Our password be our native land
Our motto, love forever
Let the orange lily be
Your badge, my patriot brother
It's the everlasting green for me
And we for one another..."

from Sean Tyrrell's song The Twelfth of July (Lament of the Children)

Cathie Ryan also has a very fine version of this song on her album Cathie Ryan
