Stand, Gleann Abhann

This song was inspired by the reactions of the members of Gleann Abhann to Katrina, and by the words of Radu and Broinnfinn, Lord and Lady Heir of Gleann Abhann.

Stand, Gleann Abhann, Stand, Gleann Abhann
We might be bloody, but we're not bowed down.
Stand, Gleann Abhann, Stand, Gleann Abhann
Stand and take your kingdom's ground.

The winds they may blow and the ocean will roar
And wash our land to the sea.
But Gleann Abhann will stand On the rubble in our land
With a vict'ry that everyone sees.

Stand, Gleann Abhann, Stand, Gleann Abhann
We might be bloody, but we're not bowed down.
Stand, Gleann Abhann, Stand, Gleann Abhann
Stand and take your kingdom's ground.

Tho war may beset us and famine may hunger us,
tho Plague may sicken us, we shall not die.
We'll stand, ever ready, to defend against our foes
and friends will know that help is nigh.

Stand, Gleann Abhann, Stand, Gleann Abhann
We might be bloody, but we're not bowed down.
Stand, Gleann Abhann, Stand, Gleann Abhann
Stand and take your kingdom's ground.

Barefoot in our shifts, with our roof the open sky,
Proudly we are standing straight and tall.
We shall not be undone, for our time has finally come
Our final truth is "Honour above all"

Stand, Gleann Abhann, Stand, Gleann Abhann
We might be bloody, but we're not bowed down.
Stand, Gleann Abhann, Stand, Gleann Abhann
Stand and take your kingdom's ground.

BRAVO!!! VIVAT to all Gleann

BRAVO!!! VIVAT to all Gleann Abhann!!!
