A Hero's Lament

As the dark clouds they do gather

I sing my last lament

For the ravens they do gather

My strength is almost spent

My life force it disperses

My blood lies in the sand

The darkness is close at hand

Gaff Roi Ga my companion

I have put my trust in thee

But the darkness of the grave

Claims us all, eventually

I bid farewell to my loved ones

They and my kinsmen, please remember me

Through sacred lugh, my father

My name will never die

The deeds I have achieved

Insures my name amongst my brother

Throughout the sacred green of Eire Ann

My name will echo in the valleys

Cu Chula inn Hound of Ulster

Cu Chula inn Bane of Medhabh

Cu Chula inn Hound of Ulster

Cu Chula inn Champion of men

Son of an immortal

Immortal he shall be

Journey to the other world

To live eternally

From Emain Macha

To Tara's hall

Your name will live as legend

And to your memory

I give a toast

Dwell with the fairy host

A farewell to a hero

Your motal days are gone

Your soul now doth fly

As free as the sun.
