Chorus:
The winds are singing freedom
They sing it everywhere
They sing it on the mountainside
And in the city square
And they sing of a new day dawning
When our people will be free
Come and join our song of freedom
Let it ring from sea to sea

In the battered streets of Belfast
Can't you hear the people cry?
For justice long denied them
And their crying fills the sky
But the winds of change are singing
Bringing hope from dark despair
There's a day of justice dawning
You can feel it in the air

Chorus

Too long our people have suffered
In their misery and their tears
And foreign rulers used our land
For about eight hundred years
It's a long road has no turning
And I know some day we'll see
A day of justice dawning
When our people will be free

Chorus

There's a time laid out for laughing
There's a time laid out to weep
There's a time laid out for sowing
And a time laid out to reap
There's a time to love your brother
There's a time when hate must cease
If you sow the seeds of justice
You can reap the fruits of peace

Chorus
