Did the fragrant bogs of Ireland caress the feet of the Son of God?
As He led his new disciples along a path His feet had trod?
When His loving arms held closely those who’d never known His love
Did the warmth of Your salvation send them healing from above?
Did Christ climb on clouded hillsides and down misty country lanes?
Telling of His resurrection and the sacrifice He’d make?
What if we had never heard of the story of His Love?
Never known just how He had saved us when He left His home above
Thank you Lord that there were servants that took Your gospel to this land
That spread the news of Your Salvation and held out a loving hand.
May we all receive gladly Your Salvation full and free
Thank You for the news that Ireland knows Your love for eternity.
