Calm and cool amid the heather
In a wind swept country wild
Like a watchful Guardian Angel
Standing o'er a wayward child
II
Beckoning onward upward ever,
Sending forth insistent call,
To the best in Irish manhood
Stands the old Hibernian Hall
III
Never has the green flag wavered
In a man of Tossey's hand
Never here the cause of Redmond
Lost a single honest man.
IV
Here undaunted 'mid the tauntings
Of the knaves and traitors all
Stood the old guard here in Tossey
Sheltered by the ancient Hall.
