The Winds are singing Freedom
(Tommy Makem)

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 soon

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

 Too long our people suffered
in their misery and tears
and foreign rulers used our land
for about eight hundred years
it's a long road has no turning
And I know someday we'll see

A day of justice dawning soon
when our people shall be free.


There's a time laid out for laughing
And 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 to cease
If you sow the seeds of justice
you can reap the fruits of peace.
