Dalriada School - O Dalriadan Land

Dalriada School - O Dalriadan Land - Lyrics

Beneath your rain-washed azure skies
Against whose northern strand
The great Atlantic roller rave;
From where your great cliffs rise
Above the grey tumultuous wave
We picture Fergus stand
With far Agyle and Isla purple 'neath his eyes

The hero's praises sing we who upon these shores now dwell
Whence he adventuring sailed boldly to the purple north;
The Pictish heathen fell
Not fearing who so gaily forth
Bore earth's most precious thing
Unknowing that he shared
Christ's conquest over hell

O Dalriadan Land!
Once to the North Christ's beacon light
Raised in Columba's hand
Amid the pagan dark to blaze
And triumph o'er the night;
As we your ancient glories praise
Proud of your native strand
We will uplift your splendid name
In all men's sight
