Our gallant ship Hibernia has many troubles seen
And many’s the good and noble fight this good old ship has seen
She had one captain of her own well loved by all his crew
His name was Dan O’Connell and to that ship proved true.

He thought to steer his gallant ship unto a place of rest
Where free from traitors he could hold his own against the rest.

So let the sons of the shamrock to that ship be true
And all for that ship let no man shiver
Her flag will wave again proudly at the main
If Irish men would only pull together.

So away with party friction and we’ll let the world know
That we can have freedom for our land if we’d strike one legal blow
For the house that is divided cannot stand for long
And if Irishmen would pull one way old Ireland would be strong.

So let the sons of the shamrock to that ship be true
And the love for their ship let no man shiver
Her flag will wave again proudly at the main
If Irish men would only pull together.
