WE SAW A VISION (a poem by Liam Mac Uistin)

In the darkness of despair we saw a vision, We lit the light of hope and it was not extinguished,
In the desert of discouragement we saw a vision, We planted the tree of value and it blossomed,
In the winter of the bondage we saw a vision, We melted the snow of lethargy and the river of resurrection flowed from it.

We sent our vision aswim like a swan on the river.

The vision became a reality. Winter became summer. Bondage became freedom. And this we left to you as your inheritance.

O generation of freedom remember us, the generation of the vision.
